This month saw a major freshen up of the online shop with new stock arriving each week. Please take the time to see what is available and see how easy it is to have these works dispatched to your homes. Should you have any difficulty what so ever just call or send us a note as sometimes these things don't seem to work for us.
We know it is sometimes difficult to make a decision about an online piece but if it doesn't meet your expectation, please send it back.

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.

Its great to know that art in whatever form it takes makes a difference wherever it presents itself. Again thank you to Tom Roubos for providing panda and to Audrey Brumby who painted and named her, Palya meaning hello, welcome and all is good.

Bernadine and Stephen are both wonderful artists with a huge following among indigenous art collectors and we are very proud to have them create a special exhibition for Indigenu's SALA 2013 event. Many of our regular customers will already be familiar with Bernadine's stunning interpretation of the "bush medicine leaf" motif (see below). Feel free to come along and bring friends to check out the exhibition, we want as many people as possible to come and appreciate the artwork. See you there !
