Artist: Rick Taylor (Advanced Diploma in Art) / Title: From Sacret To Chaos

ASSP Gallery in Port Adelaide is proudly showcasing traditional and contemporary paintings by international awarded artists and woodcarving artists at a FREE exhibition this Summer.

The multi-media exhibition will launch with a special Opening Night event on Friday, 5 February, from 5pm to 8pm. The Speaker (Welcome to Country Ceremony) will be Bonny Brodie, Granddaughter of the late Aunty Veronica Brodie and the event will feature a screening of an as-yet unpublished short film by John Murphy of Taoundi College about aspects of Aboriginal Culture.

Artist: Teresa Walker / Title: Invisible People (1)

This comprehensive exhibition gives the public a rare opportunity to meet the artists and gain a unique insight into their work - from paintings and mosaics, to woodcarvings and traditional weapons.

Participating artists include Sharon Gertz, Greg Harald, Rick Taylor, Teresa Walker, Annette Bonham (AG Sparrow), Linton 'Leno' Sykes and John Murphy.

Exhibition highlights include works by talented young indigenous artists whose paintings were recently recognised at the Adelaide Convention Centre. Port Lincoln High School were also very cooperative in providing five award-winning paintings from the Our Young Mob Prize for the exhibition. These works are part of the school's highly-acclaimed Aboriginal Art Program.

The Our Young Mob Prize recipients Waylon Miller and Jayleighka Rigney recently had the honour of meeting former champion footballer and indigenous role model Gavin Wanganeen at the Convention Centre, and were encouraged to keep up their great work.

ASSP Gallery is also an accredited SATIC member and accepts pre-bookings for Aboriginal guided tours of Port Adelaide's Aboriginal history, and the Australian Native Garden trail, both locally and within the Adelaide Botanical Gardens.

The Aboriginal Art, Craft and Woodcarvings exhibition will run from Friday 5th February to Sunday, 20th March 2016. Trading hours are as follows: Mon-Fri 11am-5pm, Sat 11am-9pm and Sun 11am-5pm.
