Our Plains, Our Hills, Our Home Exhibition Opportunity

Our Plains, Our Hills, Our Home is a professional exhibition to be held in May at Yaama Ganu, Moree. The exhibition will be curated by Arts North West Aboriginal Arts Officer, Lorrayne Riggs and will showcase excellence in Aboriginal art by Kamilaroi people and focus on the special connection Aboriginal people have to Country.

“This is an opportunity to showcase excellence in Aboriginal arts from our Kamilaroi region, often, people forget that we have some phenomenal Aboriginal artists with a connection to our region who have a lot to offer as professional artist, or have the potential to be professional artists.” Said Ms Riggs.

“Relating this exhibition back to Country shows our connectedness through our stories, our rivers and our sky. We want people to know that regional NSW has a strong market of Aboriginal artists that should be valued as it is in other areas across the country.”
The exhibition, which will have a festival atmosphere, will open on 11th May 2018 and will tap into the Moree on a Plate market.

Our Plains, Our Hills, Our Home is a selling exhibition through consignment.

As this is an exhibition of excellence, detail needs to be shown to the quality of the works including the materials used, for example, paintings should be on Belgian linen with high quality paints. Works can be provided un-stretched and Yaama Ganu will stretch ready for hanging.

This is a mixed media exhibition with mediums to include, but not limited, to multi-media, textiles, paintings, carving and weaving.
