I’m very thrilled to have a number of works included in this year’s Aboriginal Illawarra Art Trail! The exhibition runs from 11th March until 27th March 2022. Official Opening: 11th March 4pm at the Aboriginal Culture Centre & Keeping Place, part of the Illawarra Aboriginal Corporation, Kenny Street, Wollongong, NSW.

The Art Trail is designed to showcase Aboriginal artists and the diverse range of art practices in the area. This is the inaugural Illawarra Aboriginal Art Trail and eight (8) sites have collaborated with the Illawarra Aboriginal Corporation, from Thirroul, through Wollongong and on to Kiama!

Initially planned for NAIDOC Week 2021, the Art Trail is an invitation to the whole community, inviting people to enjoy the diverse representations of contemporary Indigenous art from the Illawarra. The exhibiting artists are from various ages, career stages, abilities, creative approaches and techniques. The exhibition reveals a wide range of styles, mediums, from the traditional through to collage, surrealism, realism, from paint to pencil and clay! With over 100 artworks spread over eight fabulous sites, follow the Trail to something you’ll love!

I will be invigilating at the Culture Centre, 22 Kenny Street, Wollongong on Saturday 12th & Saturday 19th March, 10am-2pm. Come in out of the rain and immerse yourself in our local works!
