Readers - what a find!
I had an appointment in town and there in the foyer of the building was a wonderful display of modern Aboriginal art. Varied techniques - naive, textured, bright, dimensional and a couple of designs simply sewn onto canvas (canvas challenge girls - take note!). This is what it was all about...
I took some photos but they are for personal use only I'm afraid. The piece I wanted to bring home is "My Beautiful Country" by Alex Blacklock.
If you can get into town before Friday - go and see the exhibit. Some have been sold - some are still available. Here's some information about it -
"For the upcoming NAIDOC Week 2009, there will be an exhibition, Colours of the Dreamtime, co-ordinated by the Malaruch Aboriginal Corporation held at the Brisbane Riverside Centre, Eagle St from Monday 6 July to Friday 17 July. Artists from all over the country will be exhibiting their works in a unified expression of artistic spirituality include Gail Mabo, Robert Barton, Biance Beetson, Daniel Murrupi and Karen Coconut."
