Tasmanian Indigenous artist Lola Greeno’s award-winning talent in shell-working is displayed in this solo exhibition of 50 highly visual and textual works, each demonstrating the traditions and culture of the Indigenous women of Tasmania’s Cape Barren and Flinders Islands. The exhibition’s overarching theme is storytelling; of the meticulous crafting of stories of cultural knowledge, natural beauty, ancient traditions and connectedness with Greeno's island home. Greeno's contemporary sculptural works that also feature are respond to the artist's concerns for the environmental future of shell stringing in northern Tasmania.
