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.
