Indigenous Art @IGS (30–31 May 2014) will benefit Indigenous communities from the city to the centre with over 150 Indigenous artworks and crafts from Central Australia and Regional Centres for viewing and sale.
Also celebrating National Reconciliation Week, the exhibition is free and open to the public from 1pm–6pm Friday 30 May and 9am–3pm Saturday 31 May 2014.
Curated by Tali Gallery, the event supports the International Grammar School (IGS)’s Indigenous Scholarship Fund, giving parents and the business community the opportunity to purchase an art work with proceeds going towards the Fund. Located on the land of the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation, IGS has a long and proud tradition of educating young Indigenous Australians. The School’s Indigenous Scholarship program recognises these values and the responsibility that our heritage requires to provide access to an IGS education.
Visiting regional artist Anthony Walker will also run two ‘hands on’ workshops on Saturday 31 May, however, the workshops will incur a modest fee and must be pre-booked. For more information, please go to: www.igsevents.com.au
