The incredibly talented people at Fireworks Gallery will again do their part, in promoting and exhibiting local Indigenous artists, this weekend. The art exhibition launch of Laurie Nilsen and Paddy Carroll Tjungurrayi will commence this Saturday February 15th from 2pm and all are welcome to celebrate these two dynamic and talented artists.
Respected lawman, painter, stockman and carpenter Paddy Carroll Tjungurrayi's work will be on display for everyone to admire and marvel at this hero of the Australian art world. Inspired by his ceremonial knowledge Paddy expressed his Dreamtime Stories, his birthplace and places he lived in and around the Western Desserts of Central Australia from the 1970s until his death in 2002.
This weekend FireWorks Gallery will be debuting Brisbane local artist Laurie Nilsen's latest work about contemporary culture, socio-political and environmental themes. Laurie was born in Roma and moved to Brisbane in the late 1960s to become a jockey before studying art and later becoming an artist. When it comes to keeping their finger on the art world, FireWorks Gallery doesn't disappoint, by hosting Australia's best contemporary artists.
This is an exhibition not to be missed highlighting the importance of preserving traditional and contemporary Indigenous art. The exhibition kicks off from 2pm-4pm. For further information regarding the art exhibition launch please visit www.fireworksgallery.com.au
