Aboriginal Art Exhibition

This exhibition of Aboriginal art and artefacts celebrates the opening of the two front rooms of the Wollombi Cultural Centre for ongoing exhibition space. One room will feature a permanent display of Aboriginal artworks, artefacts and crafts, giving life to one of the Cultural Centre’s founding intents: to support a continuing and vital Aboriginal artistic and cultural presence.

The exhibition will display the work of several Aboriginal artists, with a strong presence of women, including the veteran Aunty Clare Moran, a Dabee elder living in Cessnock. Also featured are longtime artist Andy Snelgar (Ngemba) who was recently Artist in Residence at the Art Gallery of NSW, painter and woodworker Justin Majid (TSI), Shane Smithers (Dharug) and Davinder Hart (WA).

OPENING: Join us for a smoking ceremony and dance welcome by the Wakagetti Dancers, Stuart McMinn (Dharug/Wakawaka) and others, 6pm Friday 5 February.

EXHIBITION: Open 10am - 4pm weekends, Saturday 6 to Sunday 28 February.
