Aboriginal art sought for new exhibition

The Gulaga Board of Management, in partnership with Eurobodalla Council, is calling for entries into Yuin Country: Art and Land Revealed exhibition.

A collection of works by Aboriginal artists living in Eurobodalla, the exciting exhibition will combine 2D artwork with contemporary digital techniques.

Selected works by local Aboriginal artists will be photographed and animated by digital artist Scott Baker. They will then be projected onto the front of Council’s administration building in Moruya every night of Reconciliation Week 2018. The artworks will also be exhibited in the Council Chambers and in local libraries.

Council’s Coordinator Community Development Zoe Morgan said Council was thrilled to be hosting the exhibition.

“It provides a fantastic opportunity for the community come together to celebrate Aboriginal art and culture for Reconciliation Week, which aims to strengthen relationships between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people,” she said

“It’s also allows us to show off the wonderful and unique talents of Eurobodalla’s Aboriginal artists.”

Artworks can be from any period in the artist’s career but must fit within the theme of Yuin Country: Art and Land Revealed. Guidelines and entry forms are available via esc.smartygrants.com.au/YuinCountry2018

Entries close Wednesday 11 April. The exhibition opens Friday 25 May at 6pm at the Eurobodalla Shire Council Chambers and will continues in Eurobodalla Libraries until Saturday 2 June.
