    Fairytales in Fairyland

    Grafton Regional Gallery
    6th July to 28th August 2011
    Fairytales in Fairyland explores the sense of space in Australia given through a democracy that allows all beliefs to coexist. Space in Australia is abundant both physically and conceptually. Australian artists have responded to this abundance or its outcomes with works that move beyond the real or refer to or explore the belief in fantasy.

    Artists are: Alison Williams, Avital Sheffer, Bob Connery, Cass Samms, Rindi Salomon, Jenny Kitchener, Joe Peady, John van der Kolk, Karla Dickens, Katka Adams, Louise Fulton, Steven Giese, Stuart Payne, Dave Funnell

    FREEDOM RIDERS: Art and activism 1960s to now
    Commencement Date 03/07/2011
    Completion Date 25/09/2011
    The University of Sydney

    The starting point for the exhibition ‘FREEDOM RIDERS: Art and activism 1960s to now’ is a major
    portrait, ‘Charlie Perkins’, 1986, by Aboriginal artist Robert Campbell Jnr in the University Union Art
    collection. Perkins was the first Aboriginal graduate at the University and a key figure in the Freedom
    Ride, a historic intervention initiated by Sydney University students in 1965. The Freedom Ride focused
    unprecedented attention on the systematic racism experienced by Aboriginal communities in regional
    towns across New South Wales. Campbell’s art played a pioneering role in exposing the social and
    political realities of NSW Aboriginal people. His Perkins portrait and the Freedom Ride will provide an
    historic framework for the work of six Aboriginal artists Karla Dickens, Adam Hill, Jonathon Jones,
    Michael Riley, Elaine Russell and Christian Thompson.

    Black Madonna: Grafton Gallery

    A new series of paintings, mixed media artworks, prints and sculpture based on the artist’s personal, cultural and spiritual memories. The Madonna and Child (or mother and child) is a subject which has been represented across time and place in the history of art and continues to fascinate artists. Karla has adapted this icon to her own personal life as a mother and Aboriginal woman of mixed Wiradjuri and Irish descent, and situated it within Aboriginal culture and history.
