Art on Bundjalung Market EOI Open
Arts Northern Rivers is calling out to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from, or who have a strong connection to, the Bundjalung region to join the upcoming Art on Bundjalung Market. The art market is returning to The Quad in Lismore on Saturday the 4th of December and will exhibit and celebrate the creative cultural heritage of the Bundjalung region.
Expressions of interest to participate in the market are open until the 20th of October and welcome a mix of established and emerging artists and collectives employing traditional and contemporary materials including weaving, ceramics, carving, photography, painting and textiles.
Arts Northern Rivers Indigenous Arts Officer, Kylie Caldwell, said;
“This is a unique opportunity to be a part of a creative gathering of Aboriginal artists on Bundjalung country. I strongly encourage our First Nations artists to join this incredible opportunity to showcase their work, and to celebrate Bundjalung culture.”
The inaugural 2019 Art on Bundjalung Market event provided a unique opportunity to purchase authentic Indigenous artwork and to meet the makers. Featuring over 30 artists, the free family day included live music and performances, cultural food stalls, creative workshops and more. Drawing large crowds, the included artists generated over $35,000 in sales.
