Indigenous artist Judy Watson to feature at the Shalom art exhibition

Posted by Aboriginal Art Directory | 19.06.10

In a huge coup for Shalom Gamarada’s sixth annual Ngiyana Yana Aboriginal art exhibition, it has been announced that internationally renowned contemporary Indigenous artist Judy Watson will, for the first time, exhibit at the show - which runs from June 27 to July 4 at Shalom College, UNSW. Scholarship founder Professor Dr Lisa Jackson Pulver said, “we are incredibly excited to have Judy Watson exhibiting, adding even more weight to what has been accomplished in previous years. Her works will contribute to a fantastic show.” In another triumph, we have sourced much-sought after Bagu with Jiman ceramic works from the Girringun Aboriginal Art Centre in Cardwell, Queensland.

“The Bagu with Jiman ceramic works were first revealed at the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair in August 2009 and Queensland’s Gallery of Modern Art snapped up almost all of their works at a recent exhibition, we’re hoping the NSW institutions will identify a similar opportunity to acquire such important works,” said curator Jenny Hillman.
