‘Online OnCountry Gallery: An exhibition of Aboriginal Contemporary Artists’
'Online OnCountry Gallery – an exhibition of Aboriginal Contemporary Artists’ is a digital exhibition of work created by four professional Aboriginal artists from regional NSW. It will provide some insight into the great range and quality of contemporary art being produced by NSW Aboriginal artists. The artists each bring their own unique creative styles and at the same time reflect the broad and dynamic nature of the cultural footprint of the New England and North West region. The showcase had originally been planned as a physical exhibition earlier in the year. However, COVID-19 restrictions made the possibility of exhibiting and gathering in a physical space impossible. Instead, it will be the first exhibition to be held digitally on Taragara Aboriginal Corporation’s new platform – Online OnCountry Gallery. The Gallery will be a safe place for cultural and community connection – connection that has been impacted due to this year’s ‘unprecedented’ circumstances. Exhibiting artists: Warwick Keen (Gomeroi/Gamilaraay), Brentyn Lugnan (Gumbaynggirr) and Frank Wright (Gamilaroi) and Michael Brogan (Badtjala/WakkaWakka) ‘Online OnCountry Gallery: An exhibition of Aboriginal Contemporary Artists’ opens 6pm, Wednesday 11 November 2020. The exhibition and links to a program of video artist talks will be available online at taragara.org Image caption: Brentyn Lugnan, Ngaaru: Water 2019, acrylic on canvas
