August was the usual hive of activity with the SALA event that spanned 3 weeks. The HE & SHE exhibition by Bernadine and Stephen was a virtual sellout with additional commissions requested of Bernadine Kamara Johnson. The demand for Bernadine's remains strong, keeping her very busy indeed. She always finds new ways to explore common iconography and believe she is an asset to contemporary Aboriginal art in our state. There would be few artists today that are having their art virtually before its completed, sold especially during this downward financial patch.
Everybody seemed to have had a wonderful time enjoying it all, the music, speakers, guest artists and the hospitality.
The above post will show you the RED DUST project where again Bernadine painted the quarter panel of a Toyota Hilux - yes it was with permission! The vehicle was part of a project to aid Aboriginal health initiatives. Indigenu was proud to be asked and to be involved. Demonstrations in schools continued with children of all ages and requests for Indigenu catering was steady.
