Wed 19 Nov - Sat 13 Dec 2014 'Ngi'i Chu'uchi Minthama - These (are) little (but) beautiful' (Lockhart River Miniatures Show - Group Exhibition)
A group exhibition of exquisite miniatures by a selection of artists from the acclaimed indigenous art community of Lockhart River, far northern Queensland. The exhibition features 106 stunning paintings by Silas Hobson, Elizabeth 'Queenie' Giblet, Irene Namok, Josiah Omeenyo, Evelyn Omeenyo and introducing new artists Marjorie Accoom and Norm Young. Also featured are tiny beautiful baskets crafted by the masterful weavers of the community Marjorie Accoom and Evelyn Omeenyo (who are sisters).
We are also privileged to be showing the last ever miniature 'naive'ceramics of the late Lawrence Omeenyo who was short-listed in 2013 for the WA Indigenous Art Awards.
Just in time for Christmas all of these luscious little gems are both collectable and highly affordable with all works only $150-$200 each. Pictured are some representative works of each of the artists.
