Artist Celebrate their connection to the Night Sky
Congratulations to all the artist on a successful opening night for their exhibition “Together, Walking Beneath the Night Sky”.
The exhibition bought together 12 Artists from both Yamaji barna and Noongar boodja, who together celebrated the night sky by sharing stories of their culture, childhood memories, time on country and how their individual belief systems all share the common thread of being connected to the night sky.
Attendees on the night were all captivated by the varying styles of artworks that saw Senior, Established and Emerging artists create 19 artworks full of colour! Including unique woven works on paper.
The exhibition was also the first curated by Arts Development Officer and Emerging Curator Lily-mae Kerley who spoke of her experience coordinating, curating and installing her very first exhibition. Something she is looking forward to building on in the future as she continues with the WA Museum’s ‘Emerging Curators program’ in 2024.
The exhibition will be on display at St John of God Geraldton Hospital until 16th December 2023.
Special acknowledgement to St John of God hospital for the use of their foyer and for catering the event and to funders Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries for their support.
