An exhibition of Cr Alfie Walker’s Rock Art in the foyer of the Goulburn Regional Art Gallery from March 30 to April 26. 

He will also be presenting an artist talk on Aboriginal Rock Art at the gallery at 11am on Thursday April 6. 

Aboriginal Rock Art has been a traditional practice for generations, telling stories and recording historical events within Aboriginal culture.

Cr Walker has taken a contemporary approach to this form of story telling. He is a local Aboriginal story teller, and is now telling his local stories through Contemporary Aboriginal rock painting. 

Alfie is a local Wiradjuri gibri (man) who is an elected community leader on both the peak Aboriginal organisation (Pejar LALC) and recently elected as Deputy Mayor of Goulburn Mulwaree Council.  

He descends from the Brungle Region and also descends from the Yuin people of the South Coast of NSW.
