SALA 2011 – Great Stuff Adelaide!

November 16th, 2011

What an art injection Adelaide received with the SALA Festival. Firstly a big congratulations to Penny who heads the event - a remarkable job as always. Penny, I look forward to working with you again in 2012 in even a  greater capacity. For Indigenu it meant many Asian visitors on bikes visited each Saturda Tony gave short cultural talks about the iconography of the Indigenu works along with some  other cultural information. Dampers crusted with wattle seed and mountain pepper berry were served to of the guests, giving them a taste of Outback Australia. The groups need to be commended for their interest and enthusiasm. Each of the Saturdays were bright and sunny and it was a joy to see 20 or so bicycles parked at the front.y,

Some visitors attended as part of an art trial and it was great to welcome these art lovers. I also need to applaud a lady to who spent over an hour ruminating over one of Audrey's paintings - there wasn't a sale but am confident that she will return. It was great meeting her just the same and I look forward to her return hopefully to pick up the piece she fell in love with.
Thank you to all our customers and guests that made the event effort to attend and add thier support for the event. Great work Adelaide!
Elsie Granites witth her painting of the Mina Mina Dreaming sold during SALA. It was a really stunning piece and lives in Melbourne, congratulations Andrew!  Melbourne folk, don't forget to contact Indigenu Victoria as some wonderful competitively priced pieces are now available.

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

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.

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.
