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.

The NSW Schools Reconciliation Challenge is an annual state-wide art competition for young people in years 5-9, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, of all artistic abilities. Each year has a different theme, providing a framework that offers students different perspectives on reconciliation.
The competition theme for 2015 was Homegrown Heroes and students were invited to consider what constitutes a ‘hero’ and to learn about some of the heroes of the reconciliation movement.
The competition received hundreds of entries, from across NSW, including from schools in the Mid-North coast region. The winning artworks captured the ideas of heroism in reconciliation and the need for heroes in everyday life.
From Saturday 13th of February until Sunday 6th March, 2016, the Dunghutti-Ngaku Aboriginal Art Gallery will be exhibiting the 2015 competition finalists, representing the most outstanding entries.
Collections from previous years have shown that young people really do have some insightful things to say about reconciliation, expressed in creative and clever ways. We hope that you enjoy coming to see these inspiring works of art.
