Cicada Press: Gamarada

For several years, Tess Alass and Michael Kempson at Cicada Press, within the School of Art at the College of Fine Arts at the University of NSW in Sydney, have worked closely with Aboriginal artists from New South Wales and other parts of the country, building print portfolios and providing the artists with new skills to take into their future practice.

The result of these workshops and residencies is a growing body of print works which reflect the artistic diversity of established and emerging artists in the print medium. The exhibition Gamarada,  meaning 'comrades or friends' in the Gadigal language of the Eora Nation of the Sydney area, presents a selection of recent print productions.

Among the featured artists are Vernon Ah Kee, Reko Rennie, Jason Wing, Gordon Hoockey, Fiona Foley and artists from Papunya.

Curated by Tess Alass, Associate Lecturer, College of Fine Arts (COFA), University of NSW and JD Mittmann, Burrinja.

Myths and Legends of West Arnhem Land: Nganjmirra Family Drawings

The many rock art sites of Arnhem Land in the Top End of Northern Territory bear testimony to the existence and cultural activities of its Aboriginal inhabitants for tens of thousands of years. Since the arrival of Europeans these have been recorded increasingly on bark, on canvas and in other forms.

The McLeod Gift Collection of Aboriginal and Pacific Art, which Burrinja manages on behalf of its owner, Yarra Ranges Council, includes a rare collection works on paper from Arnhem Land, created by one of the great Australian art dynasties, three generations of the Nganjmirra family. Drawings by Nawakadj Nganjmirra, Alex, Peterson, Ralph, Thompson and Wesley record traditional stories of creation, law and life in Kunwinjku country, the great plateau of West Arnhem Land.

Also showing at Yarra Ranges Regional Museum,
21 February - 22 March 2015.

Felice Cipriani & Neil McLeod
The Confessional Box

A truly remarkable exhibition by two of the real innovators in the international art scene: Felice Cipriani and Neil McLeod are about to launch a series of abstract paintings into the art world with exhibitions in China, Russia and France in 2015/16. Felice Cipriani was once described by Salvador Dali as "a true artist". This exhibition is the result of the collaboration of the two artists and long-time companions.

Mari Metcalfe
A Traveller Through Colour and Form

An exhibition of over 35 acrylic paintings by Mari Metcalfe. Mari has lived in different countries and interprets what she has experiences through colourful and semi-abstract images.  She is drawn to the flowing curves of the feminine and represents this in threads of colour and sensuous earthen vessels. She has a unique style and view of the world, so do not miss this opportunity to share in her imagination.
