Painting Country – Mapping the Macleay

Mapping the Macleay features personal stories of local indigenous elders which were digitally recorded and shown to 11 schools throughout the Macleay. The school students, with the help of local artists Uncle Richard Campbell, Uncle Milton Budge, Aunty Esther Quinlin and Elwyn Toby then developed their interpretations of the stories into paintings to form a series of murals.
The murals will be on display at the Dunghutti-Ngaku Aboriginal Art Gallery located inside the Visitor Information Centre at South Kempsey. The gallery is open from 10am until 4pm Tuesday – Sunday.
