The Postcards from the Fire, painting and sculpture exhibition will run until the 31

October 2020 with daily opening hours from 10.00am to 4.00pm at The Gallery 2/52 Sydney Street Mogo.

The Gallery Mogo is a CABBI venture, that is open to local and regional visual art and craft


This exhibition features aboriginal artists, Linda Carlson, a Biripi woman, Sherrie Nye, a

Walbunga Yuin woman and Adam McCarron a Walbunga Yuin man, expressing their

experiences of the fire and its impact on their community.

Sherrie Nye says

On NYE 2019 Our Minga Biriga (Great Mother) unleashed her fury on our country.

She burnt 90% of My homelands with devastating consequences.

Our landscape. Our wildlife.

Our Lives and those of our Elders and Children have been changed forever.

This impact was felt across the entire community with the sculptor Nick Hopkins losing his

house and studio.

In a creative response to the fire, Nick has crafted two sculptures from the charred roof

beams of his destroyed home.

While Cecilia Jackson has used the charcoal from the fire as the pigment for her Remnant

prints series, which makes each print unique due to the texture of the charcoal ink.
