April News

1) Exhibitions

The community is invited to the opening of 3 new exhibitions at the Armidale Aboriginal Cultural Centre and Keeping Place on Kentucky Street. The exhibitions will be opened on Thursday, 30th March 2017 at 6pm.

The first exhibition which will be held at the ACCKP gallery is Tones and Hues. Black and White. This is an exhibition of black and white paintings and prints. The monochromatic exhibition consists of works by ACCKP artists and prints by members of the ACCKP Black and White Photography Club.  

The second exhibition is called Objects: limits, symmetry, proportion! made up of three-dimensional artworks from the ACCKP collection. The body of work is a combination of pieces purchased by the Centre from Aboriginal artists residing in Tamworth, Armidale, Guyra and Brisbane. These works were collected and added to the Centre’s Collection over a period of 10 years.

The third exhibition Connect. Consult. Collaborate. will be displayed in the ACCKP Local Heroes wall. It is a display of 6 aboriginal art works from the New England Regional Art Museum collection. Of the 6 works displayed 5 were part of the generous Anthony Renshaw donation that included some 80 works by Aboriginal artists including canvas and bark paintings, carved sculptures and coffin logs collected from 1978 - 1994. NERAM holds within its collection over 100 Aboriginal works from first Frist Nation People from areas such as Ramingining, Arnhem Land, Bathurst Island, Papunya, Yirrkala, Melville Island, Utopia and Maningrida.     

This exhibition highlights the on-going partnership between the New England Regional Art Museum and the Armidale and Region Aboriginal Cultural Centre and Keeping Place that aims to foster collaboration and cultural exchange between these two organisations.  

Light refreshment and entertainment will be on offer at the opening at 6pm, Thursday the 30th March 2017. The public is invited to attend.
