Check out this absolutely beautiful photograph (link below to the post) of Mr. Donegan addressing the audience.
I was in Darwin recently, en route to Balgo for another five months at Warlayirti Artists. What a great time to be there; the NATSIAA’s are happening as is the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair as part of the Darwin Festival… not forgetting to mention Darwin’s great weather!
After manning Warlayirti’s stall at the Art Fair, my colleague and I attended the NATSIAA opening at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory. So much work to look at in the little time we had before the official opening but, a good range of works including the new ‘New Media’ category.
Sitting down for the opening with the requisite Falafel, it was an amazing setting sun by the waterfront whilst catching entertainment provided by Lou Bennet (Yorta Yorta represent!) and Duganda Street Sounds. Having my gear with me, I couldn’t help but take a few images of the awards and the goings on…
Congratulations to Mr Donegan, the other Award winners, and all those who participated in the show.
