Local Aboriginal artists’ exhibition Brush without fame


Hurstville Museum & Gallery invites you to attend the official opening of our Brush without fame exhibition, a collection of contemporary and traditional Aboriginal art and craft, on Saturday 6 July 2019.

The exhibition, which is part of Georges River Council’s NAIDOC Week program, will showcase works from established and emerging local Aboriginal artists from Kurranulla Aboriginal Corporation including Tom Avery, Deanna Schreiber, Annette Webb, Nathan Frank, Caitlin Trindall, and Shantelle Matthews.

The show will include colourful artwork depicting a diverse range of subject matter, such as animals and storytelling.

Kurranulla Aboriginal Corporation is a not-for-profit organisation that strives to develop closer ties between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people and promote Aboriginal culture.

This drop-in centre for the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community living in the Sutherland Shire and St George areas has been running for over 20 years.

Brush without fame will be on display at Hurstville Museum & Gallery from 6 July to 28 July 2019.

In conjunction with this exhibition, Hurstville Museum & Gallery will be holding a school holiday workshop.
