Please join us for an afternoon glass of wine at our opening of the Mornington Island Artist Exhibition.
Established in 2005, Mornington Island Art is a thriving aboriginal art centre located on Mornington Island in the Gulf of Carpentaria.
The energy and activity within the centre (and possibly the isolation from mainland influences) results in work characterised by a vivid and colourful palette as well as semi-abstract and abstract lines, shapes and forms. The forerunner of this movement was Sally Gabori (Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda).
These artists, and others working with the centre, are making strong contemporary artworks, not just strong Aboriginal artworks. Mornington Island artists are heavily influenced and connected to the land and culture in their artistic interpretation.
Art Mark Gallery is excited to present artworks from the highly-collected artists of Mornington Island located in the Gulf of Carpentaria. Their first exhibition in Canberra.
