When:6 - 29 July, 2017
To celebrate NAIDOC week, and the contributions of first nations people to the arts culture of Australia, TAC presents a suite of exhibitions in the gallery spaces from the 6th to the 29th of July, 2017.
Returning to continue a long association with Tuggeranong Arts Centre, is internationally acclaimed local artist Jennifer Kemarre Martiniello.
Jenni’s practice has encompassed painting, print making and writing, and she is now firmly established as an award winning glass artist. In this exhibition, her large scale blown glass fish traps and dilly bags will take pride of place.
Alongside Jenni’s exhibition, we feature 2 emerging artists with diverse styles.
Kayannie Denigan is a young Anangu artist with family cultural ties to Bagarrmuguwarra and Kuku Yalanji Bama.
Kayannie’s work combines the iconic dots of her Luritja heritage with the colours and stories of her upbringing in Cape York.
Karen Lee is an emerging artist whose practice explores the native flora and fauna around her home in lower Blue Mountains/Penrith region in NSW. Her vibrant paintings are overlaid with aboriginal symbolism and patterns.
