Portland-based Gamilaroi artist Glenn Dennis has opened a solo show of his paintings at the Kew Y Ahn Aboriginal Gallery at Hartley Historic Site.
Called Glenn’s Journey the colourful works each tell part of his personal story.
The artist grew up in Walgett and first started drawing around age six when taught by his older sister Debbie.
“Growing up I then got more skills by watching my uncles and aunties how they paint and carve emu eggs, make boomerangs, didgeridoos, etc,” Mr Dennis said.
“From there I began my journey. I went walkabout searching. I began growing and I turned out to be what I wanted to become: An ARTIST. That’s my journey.”
The exhibition runs Tuesday through to Sunday until July at Kew-Y-Ahn Aboriginal Gallery, Hartley Historic Site, off the Great Western Highway, Hartley.
Kew-Y-Ahn Aboriginal Gallery is a dedicated Aboriginal art gallery exhibiting and selling work of Aboriginal artists of the NSW Central West. See paintings, jewellery, carvings, textiles, cards and gifts by more than a dozen Aboriginal artists alongside this solo exhibition.
The gallery is a partnership between regional arts development organisation Arts OutWest, NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service and the NSW Department of Environment and Heritage.
