Western Riverina Arts are pleased to invite Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists (residing in the Western Riverina region of NSW – Narrandera, Leeton, Griffith City and Murrumbidgee Shires) to express interest in taking part in the 2016 art exhibition Murrumbidgee Marramarra.
Murrumbidgee Marramara is a new partnership venture with works to be exhibited in the Griffith Regional Art Gallery during June 2016. The exhibition will also then tour to the Narrandera Arts Centre.
Regional Development Officer Derek Motion says the aim of this exhibition is to provide an opportunity to celebrate the culture and creativity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists in the region.
‘The Western Riverina is home to some very talented Indigenous artists and this project will present the best of their works in a major regional art gallery, showcasing it to the wider community,’ he said. ‘We also hope the project will encourage younger artists to get involved and to create new work. In partnership with the Griffith Regional Art Gallery we have plans to make this exhibition an annual process.’
Any Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists interested in exhibiting work should fill out the attached form, and return to Western Riverina Arts with an image of your work.
