Obalow with her ‘starfish’ basket

We were extremely fortunate to welcome Aunty Liz and Uncle Ken Thaiday to Tali Gallery to open our ‘For Love of Country’ exhibitions on 23rd November.  Along with Elisa Jane Carmichael, there was a wonderful spirit of welcome – local children had prepared a welcome card depicting our community for each of these artists.   It was pleasing to have an artist of world fame who has been practising his craft for some 30 years and then a young emerging artist who also inspired us all.   Upstairs was the launch of the Indulkana artists’ exhibition – different circumstances again whereby these elderly men had commenced painting their country fairly recently.  Zoe Reynolds was our non Indigenous Sydney based contributor who also attended and spoke about her first hand experience of the rising seas on Sabai in the Torres Strait Islands.   IMG_8386 IMG_8399 IMG_8406 IMG_8412 IMG_8426 IMG_8442 IMG_8444
