NAIDOC Week exhibitions at Tuggeranong Arts Centre

14 June to 10 August 2024

Wiradjuri artist Jamie Lea Trindall’s exhibition All Guns Blazing (above) explores the ancient traditions of carving and string making in a show inspired by her upbringing on Waukegan.

Using contemporary approaches to fibre, ceramic installation, and printmaking, Trindall’s work presents stories from fringe dwelling pastoralists, forefathers of the wool trade, nurses, stockman, camp chefs and cowboys.

Exploring their First Nations heritage in printmaking and textiles, Turner and Daley say their work explores culture and connection to Country. The work is the result of an artsACT funded residency at Megalo Print Studio.

The exhibitions are about the local environment of Tuggeranong. Considering the impacts of their creative practice, the artists have chosen to create mixed media works using found materials and naturally created pigments.

A series of public programs will enable audiences to get to know the artists and celebrate First Nations cultural practices.
