Exhibitions 18th March to 12th May 2016

The Aboriginal Cultural Centre and Keeping Place will open three new exhibitions (pl. see attached invitations) on Friday, 18th March 2016 at 6.00pm. The local and surrounding communities are invited to attend the official opening at the Centre.

 Warwick Keen is exhibiting Back to Burra Bee Dee, work resulting from his time spent with COFA (College of Fine Arts at the University of NSW, Sydney) after winning the COFA Aboriginal Artist Residency Award during the 2013 NSW Parliament Aboriginal Art Awards. The exhibition is inspired by Warwick’s great, great grandmother, Mary-Jane Cain, who was instrumental in the establishment and development of the Aboriginal Reserve known as “BURRA BEE DEE”, situated 6 miles east of Coonabarabran.

The second exhibition is a selection of paintings, also by Warwick Keen, exploring the detrimental effects of fracking in the process of coal seam gas extraction on the environment.

The third exhibition is a glorious display of intricately painted objects by well-known artist, Brian Irving. He has used his meticulous dot painting technique to adorn boab nuts, saws, boomerangs and planter pots, amongst other everyday objects.

A thought provoking and entertaining evening with music, food and drinks is planned and the community is invited to attend on Friday, 18th March at 6pm.

We are organising morning tea at Sandra Welsman’s property about 13 kms north of Armidale.  We will be able to view Sandra’s LandArtFarm project, in which Sandra is creating land art across her property of 100 odd acres.  She has developed more than 20 different creations across the property.  It really is the most amazing vision Sandra is realising.
