New Exhibitions: 24th September to 21st November 2015

The Aboriginal Cultural Centre and Keeping Place will open three exhibitions on Thursday, 24 September at 6.00 pm. The community is invited to attend the opening.

The first exhibition is "Maningrida Works on Paper" by female artists from the Maningrida Region. These works celebrate the strength and vibrancy of women’s art. The works depict bold handling of subject matter traditionally dealt with and discussed by men, making a voluble statement and a resounding impression whilst celebrating the strength and vibrancy of women’s art from remote Australia. The female artists who contributed to this collection are Jay Rostron, Lena Kuriniya, Susan Marawar, Annie Mulunwanga, Vicky Brown and Mary Marabamba.

The second exhibition is called "Women And Their Toolkit."  This exhibition comprises of coolamons, dilly bags, yam diggers and other specialised women’s tools.  The collection will focus on items that form part of traditional women’s everyday life.

The third exhibition will showcase winning artworks from the NSW Fair Trading art competition. Since 2008 NSW Fair Trading has been running a NAIDOC Week Art Competition targeting local Aboriginal school students in the New England/North West areas of NSW. This year the winning works will be exhibited at the Armidale Aboriginal Cultural Centre.

These three exhibitions will be on display until the 21st November 2015. The community is invited to join us for the opening.
