Showing alongside Our Young Mob for young Aboriginal artists, these exhibitions are the culmination of artistic activities throughout the state and are held in the spirit of reconciliation to demonstrate the power of art in bringing people together.
Don Dunstan Foundation Award Winner: Josephine Lennon Solo Exhibition
Josephine's early work began in a more traditional style, however she has since evolved her style to include abstract depictions of the lines and colours that evoke the undulating and changing land (Munda). She states that her paintings are of the country around Ceduna and Coober Pedy and depict the lines of drifting sand, wind, camp fires, waterholes, weaving and wild flowers. Josephine is proud to present her solo exhibition as a part of Our Mob 2017 with thanks to the Don Dunstan Foundation.
