Murray Arts | Burraja Gallery Relaunch

Following a brief hiatus, Murray Arts are excited to be re-launching burraja gallery on Wednesday 28th February. Join the team to celebrate the unveiling of the new space, and the opening of the gallery’s first exhibition for 2018.
 
Sacred is a collection of new work by mixed media artist, Peter Rowe that contemplates our inherent accountability to the land we live on. It evokes the purity of our natural world and incites a mindful approach when interacting with it. The opening will be the curatorial debut of Aboriginal Arts Curator, Bethany Thornber.
 
Sacred is a compelling body of work about the temporality of nature and human culpability to respect our land. Peter offers a poignant lesson about the cause and effect of land treatment which will continue to resonate with audiences. We are proud to be showing Peter’s work, his first solo exhibition, and mine also.”
 
burraja gallery is the only Aboriginal art gallery dedicated to local artists in the border region. We advocate for all Aboriginal artists who live and work locally, and provide an opportunity for dialogue and connection through art in our community.
 
burraja now boasts two separate gallery experiences; An intimate solo-exhibition space and a rotating exhibit that embodies the diversity of the artists in our local Aboriginal art community. Included in the re-launch, amongst others, will be work from artists Treahna Hamm and Phil Murray.
 
2018 sees burraja gallery continuing its commitment to Aboriginal Arts development. Murray Arts have an exciting year ahead with a dynamic program of exhibitions, workshops, and artists talks and look forward to offering our artists professional opportunities to show and sell work, collaborate and develop their artistic practice.
