An exhibition of new and recent works by emerging Aboriginal artists from the Wilcannia community, in the remote far western region of New South Wales. Situated on the Darling River, on Bakindji land, Wilcannia is home to a tightly knit Aboriginal community and a significant number of practicing artists. Addressing a long-term trend of underrepresentation of Aboriginal artists from NSW in favour of those from NT and WA, this exhibition seeks to overcome the tyranny of distance by giving artists the opportunity to exhibit and sell their work to the broader Sydney audience, generating a valuable cultural exchange that transcends the urban-rural divide.
This exhibition includes paintings, drawings, linocut prints and traditional sculpture from independently practicing artists, artists involved in a workshop program supported by Murdi Paaki Regional Enterprise Corporation, and student work from Wilcannia Central School.
Launch: Thursday 31 July, 6pm – 8:30pm
In ancient times the Greeks referred to the process of making pottery as “The Mysteries”. This exhibition addresses the desire to create beauty in form and colour through the alchemy of clay and fire. This urge leads the maker down a path of exploration and learning while the beholder is enticed by the idea of possessing an item of beauty. Many of the works presented were fired in an experimental wood fired kiln using recycled clay bodies and ash glazes.
