Aboriginal art in the Northern Rivers

Posted by Aboriginal Art Directory | 06.12.08

Gallery: Lismore Regional Art Gallery
Dates: 24.12.08 : 26.12.08

Building on a highly successful event in 2004, a special art and craft exhibition is planned for the Australia Day long weekend at Lismore City Hall to help build livelihoods for and improve the health of Indigenous communities.

The exhibition is again being convened by Dr Malcolm Tester and will be a joint venture between Gurgun Bulahnggelah (Lismore Aboriginal Health) and Norpa. The idea is to sell art, providing income to Aboriginal artists, as well as raising funds to further develop the art industry by providing the infrastructure and financial resources to mount further smaller exhibitions.
