EXHIBITIONS

  • Goulburn Regional Art Gallery

Until Saturday February 24, Yidumduma Bill Hardney, Bush Professor: A retrospective exhibition celebrating the life work of Yidumduma Bill Hardney. Now in his 80s, Hardney is one of the last fully initiated elders of the Wardaman people. He is a charismatic storyteller and artist and the only remaining living custodian of the collective memory, laws and history of his people. Hardney's knowledge has been described by anthropologists as 'encyclopedic in nature' and his artwork is one way that he shares this intimate understanding with the world. 

Closing Saturday February 17, the Norman Lindsay Snapshot Exhibition. Lindsay (1879-1969) was an artist, cartoonist, accomplished amateur boxer and writer, producing a vast body of work in different media, including pen drawing, etching, watercolour, oil and sculptures.
