Wiradjuri Traditional Art Exhibation
Dear Eskbank Friends,
We are very pleased to invite you to a special and unique exhibition at Eskbank House called Dhaga Ngiyanhi Ngan.Girra/Where we all Meet
Wiradjuri artists Lynette Riley and Diane Riley-McNaboe from Dubbo originally created this exhibition with the Western Plains Cultural Centre Dubbo. Lithgow City Council and Mingaan Wiradjuri Aboriginal corporation have worked with the artists to bring this exhibition to Lithgow.
It includes headdresses and belts from grass and feathers, Kangaroo-skin cloaks and a possum-skin blanket, the only one of its kind made in the Wiradjuri area. The cloaks and blanket all contain poker and dye work telling stories of the people and the land.
For more information on the exhibition please go to the Eskbank House website
The exhibition runs from 2 April - 4 May 2014.
The Official Opening to which you are all invited is at 2pm on Saturday 12 April with talks by the artists.
We look forward to seeing you all at Eskbank soon.
