The Bikies


November 16th, 2011

A group of Chinese cyclists came to visit, enjoyed the art work, sampled some Indigenous snacks and cycled to their next artistic destination. These visits will be a weekly event during SALA. It was such a pleasure to have a visit from Penny McCauley the general manager of SALA. What a great event and Adelaide comes to life.



Never a Dull Moment


November 16th, 2011

It's nice to know that Indigenu is a place where artists can feel somewhat at home to visit with their extended families. sometimes they are lucky enough to arrive when some home baking has been happening or just happy to enjoy a patch of sunshine on the veranda. Above are Christine Brown From Mimili, on a sunny Sunday morning and 4 generations of the Granites family from Yuendamu visiting Indigenu. Indigenu now plans and awaits the next exhibition for the SALA festival ( see home page) the artist is creating, the guest speaker has been confirmed ( thankfully he is in the country) thankyou Leigh and Samantha has been booked to add some fine music to the mix. the catering and curating are the next bits. Cheers from me, Tony of Indigenu.



NAIDOC 2011


November 16th, 2011

Wow, what an experience for a whole lot of people last week with the cultural activities that took place at Various government departments last week. The ATO commissioned a work from Audrey Brumby painted at their Waymouth site with many interested staff onlookers. They were somewhat amazed that something so beautiful was created in front of them without any covert planning.

The painting was completed within the suggested time frame and was handed over to Nola from the NAIDOC committee to be the custodian of the piece until it is located in its new home. An ovation to you  all for your efforts.
The child Support agency engaged the services of Priscilla Nagamarra- Escobar.


The Official opening of Indigenu


November 16th, 2011

His Honour, Kingsley Newman was gracious in opening Indigenu Gallery on the 28th of February on the roof top at 131 Sturt Street among 75 guests on a hot but balmy evening. Kingsley began with traditional acknowledgement of country and took the opportunity to say some very nice things about the host. Hopefully it wasn’t too difficult for him. The group descended to the gallery where Kingsley cut red, yellow and black ribbons and declared the gallery open. A sense of pride was felt knowing that what had been envisioned for a number of years had finally come together. The guests, although somewhat packed in and a little hot, were primed and ready to purchase and there was quite a flutter with red dots dispersed with trays of Indigenous tastings and a bit of sparking. From the photos it appeared that people did have fun and that’s how I would like an Indigenu event to be remembered. It was also for supporting Indigenous families and bring their stories and culture in your homes. Artists, Priscilla Nagamarra – Escobar and Ben Miller proudly spoke with guests about their work, ideas and culture. Thankyou guys , you were fine ambassadors for the event. A complimentary door raffle formed part of the evening, drawn by Dennis Brown and won by Dennis Linnard who also happened to be the birthday boy on this occasion. It was funny and the draw appeared tampered with and perhaps corrupt but it was only a funny coincidence. Of course he was rapped with his prize and has proudly displayed it in his home. It was a successful evening and i look forward to hosting many more and seek your ongoing interest in supporting some wonderful Indigenous Artists and their families.
