CURRENT EXHIBITION

'Barani-Barawul' - Andrew Snelgar


Andrew Snelgar, an Aboriginal artist, uses traditional techniques to carve and produce Aboriginal weapons and implements. Stories attached to these items are related to the dreaming, and creation times. Come to the Wollombi Cultural Centre to share these stories.

Barani Barawul roughly means - yesterday a long, distant place. I acknowledge the traditional owners of the Wollombi People, and surrounding groups - the Darkinjung, Awabakal, Worimi, Biripi, Wonaruah and Gamilaroy and thank them for safe passage on their land.

OPENING NIGHT: Friday 27 June at 5pm - snacks and drinks provided.

EXHIBITION: Open weekends 10am - 4pm, from 28 June - 13 July 2014.
