The team at the Manning Regional Art Gallery have been busy preparing for two new exhibitions which kick offthis Thursday, March 2, including theSaltwater Freshwater Aboriginal Art Awardand LyneMarshall’sRE:Location.
Clem Ritchie: Two Camps acrylic on canvas.
As a unique art competition, the Saltwater Freshwater Aboriginal Art Award aims to promote Aboriginal art from its local region.
The Saltwater Freshwater Arts Alliance invites Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders who reside in the Worimi, Biripi, Birpai, Dhungutti and Gumbaynggirr nations to enter this annual award and this exhibition will display the finalists for 2017.
MidCoast Council’s acting art gallery directorRachel Piercyis excited to have these fabulous works on display.
“This is the first year this exhibition has toured and we’re pleased that we can showcase the diverse range of artworks for the community to enjoy,”said Rachel.
Lyne Marshall’sRE:Locationexhibition is a project based on relocation.
Initially basedaround the story of her own ancestors emigrating to Australia in the 1800s, she also investigated the past and present inhabitants of our land.
As part of this travelling exhibition, Lyne has placed ‘Art Pods’ in 10 locations in the lands of her ancestors in Ireland and Scotland and she will now also place these pods in locations on the Mid North Coast.
The Manning Regional Art Gallery pods are now in public areas and while hidden, are easily located with no digging required.
If found, please take one artwork, leave a message if you like and replace the pod. The location of the pods can be found at the gallery with clues and GPS location coordinates.
