Our Stars Hazelhurst Regional Gallery

Following a link on Facebook from a friend (FB does have its uses!), I came across these wonderful examples of Aboriginal art currently to be seen at the Hazelhurst Regional Gallery and Art Centre, New South Wales in the Nganampa Kililpil: Our Stars exhibition.




The wonderful vibrancy of colour and movement of these pieces had me captivated. I saw similar in the Sydney Museum of Contemporary Art and various other venues during our visit to Australia a year ago but none surpassed the rich colour and complexity of this work. How I would love to be able to go and see it in person!

My only regret is that I'm unable to credit these wonderful artists properly as I can't find individual attributions for the works anywhere.

  2. I first saw Australian Aboriginal paintings many years ago in London at the Rebecca Hossack Gallery, and I believe she still exhibits them - although I have not been there for ages.

    1. It appears that indeed Rebecca Hossack does still exhibit Aboriginal paintings and in fact has a collection of them. I think I need a trip to London from deepest Wiltshire! There are several galleries I want to visit and I'v added her name to my list.

  3. I saw these too ( in fact I think I shared them via the Quilters Tea Shop) and they had me captivated too. And another friend here in MK was really taken with them and I think they may have set hares racing. Yes, you have to admit it, but FB has its uses!
