|This exhibition will showcase a brilliant selection of new paintings and works on paper in pencil and watercolour by Sally Gabori, Netta Loogatha and Elsie Gabori. It brings together the unique styles of these three Kaiadilt women, who each portray the tropical seascape of their country on Bentinck Island in the Gulf of Carpentaria, Queensland. |
Sally Gabori is among the leading contemporary Australian Indigenous artists painting today. She continues to take viewers on a visual journey through life, landscape and memory in her art. Three major paintings by Sally Gabori were exhibited at the Palazzo Bembo in the Personal Structures exhibition as part of the 55th Venice Biennale.
This exhibition also features amazing work by Netta Loogatha, one of the renowned seven sisters who burst onto the art scene in 2005 with vibrant and unique depictions of country, and emerging artist and daughter of Sally, Elsie Gabori, who continues to draw creative influence from her mother while developing her own artistic style of portraying her home on Bentinck Island.
Come along to the exhibition launch for afternoon tea and a guided tour through the show led by Alcaston Gallery director Beverly Knight.
