Exhibition: Art and Stories

Darwin Community Arts - Thu, 03/26/2015 - 15:12

In their first major exhibition, Patsy Chulugu and Arthur Que Noy share their art and stories for their Daly River country in the Northern Territory. The official opening will take place on Tuesday, 7 April, at 11am at the Northern Territory library in Darwin City. The exhibition will be held until 26 June 2015.

Patsy is a Brinkin woman who grew up on the Daly River. Arthur was born in Darwin and worked here as a wharfie for over 30 years. He was also a bushman and regularly visited the Daly River, looking after his country as a Kamu Elder.

Patsy’s evocative paintings tell stories about country and the animals and plants that represent Dreamings and places. Arthur passed away in August 2014 but was keen to tell the story of his peoples’ struggles following the arrival of Europeans in the Daly River area. This exhibition is privileged to include one of Arthur’s last paintings, ‘The Massacre’, about the massacre of Woolwonga (Kamu) people at the Daly River Copper Mine in 1884.

This project is supported by Arts NT and Darwin Community Arts.

Date(s): Tuesday, 7 April 2015 - 11:00am to Friday, 26 June 2015 - 5:00pm

The bike shed is open from Monday to Thursday 2.30-4.30pm, additional hours depends on public demand.
