Carers of Country

Capsule exhibitions online at Everywhen

Due to the unprecedented health crisis, Everywhen Artspace is regretfully postponing its April scheduled exhibition of the riverland works of Kaiela Arts, Shepparton. Instead, it will be presenting a series of online exhibitions under the title Carers of Country that feature the many ways in which Australia’s Indigenous people preserve knowledge through art and care for the land, the environment and wildlife.

“We’ll be featuring some of the Kaiela works in an online exhibition and re-scheduling the show as soon as we can,” says Everywhen’s co-curator, Susan McCulloch. “Kaiela artists are a wonderful group and have been working very hard on a great series that celebrates the once-fertile riverlands flora. However, their health and that of our clients, staff and the general community is far more important at this time.”

“Over April and May we’re presenting a series of dynamic exhibitions of beautiful new Aboriginal art from around Australia on particular subjects, styles and media,’ Susan says.  “The online shows include works of particular arts centres and their regions and those on themes such as bush medicine landscapes, birds and wildlife, the power of black and white, fire and water, mothers and daughters and traditional healers. We’ll be including extensive information with each of the exhibitions to both educate and inspire.”

Private gallery viewings of works will be available and Everywhen is offering free delivery for all artwork purchases.

The online exhibitions will be promoted via Instagram and Facebook and available for viewing at where those interested can also sign up for email news for information about events and special offers.

Everywhen is currently open by appointment only and private viewings are welcome. Free delivery of all artwork purchases and interest free loans through Art Money are also available.

Ngura Walytja, Antara by Josina Pumani from the APY Lands of South Australia, and Tiwi Islander Thomas Munkanome’s Pelican are just two of many works to feature in Everywhen’s Carers of Country online exhibitions in autumn
