The exhibition will run until May 31 and each of the five artists will do a residency in the Nulla Nulla Gallery where they will paint and create artworks insitu. Visitors and students who visit the exhibition and gallery will be able to see how the artists produce their artworks, with the artists answering questions and sharing their rich cultural stories and history.
The exhibition project is the third collaboration between the Slim Dusty Centre and the Dunghutti Aboriginal Art Gallery (DNAAG). So far the two organisations have worked together to promote Aboriginal artists and each other, and on this occasion received funding from Arts NSW under the Aboriginal Regional Arts Fund.
The exhibition entry is free and everyone is welcome to attend. Schools are encouraged to bring student groups to the gallery, while the artists are in residence, to gain opportunities to engage with the artists and their practice.
The Five Women Connected and Seen exhibition opens on Thursday April 6 and runs until May 21.
