MURRU - regional Aboriginal art at its finest
Following the remarkable success of 'Murrumbidgee Marramarra' (2016) and 'Warangesda: Deep Waters' (2017), Griffith Regional Art Gallery and Western Riverina Arts present our third exhibition celebrating Wiradjuri culture and showcasing the incredible artworks of Indigenous artists from our very own region.
After successfully exhibiting at the Griffith Regional Art Gallery MURRU will now tour to the Narrandera Arts Centre from Monday 21st January to Monday 4th February, open each day from 10am - 4pm.
The third iteration of our Aboriginal arts project gives local Indigenous artists the opportunity to showcase their artworks in a major regional art gallery. Like these earlier exhibitions MURRU features quality works and has been supported by a program of workshops and professional development activities for local Aboriginal artists.
Regional Development Officer Derek Motion says the aim of this exhibition is to provide an opportunity to celebrate the creativity and cultural engagement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists in the region.
‘This ongoing project presents the work of our local Aboriginal artists in a major regional art gallery, showcasing it to the wider community. It builds on the work done in the last two years, helping to build skills in new mediums,’ he said. ‘And we also hope that as in previous years the project will encourage younger artists to get involved and to create new work.’
