Circular Quay, Customs House Library – “Threads from Meriam Mir” :

a great splash of colour from the artists from Erub Erwer Meta, the Darnley Island Arts Centre in the Torres Straits, who translate their traditional stories onto beautiful and bright screen printed fabrics.

The remarkable GhostNet Bags and Jewellery made by these resourceful artists will also be on display and available for sale.
