A solo exhibition of landscapes, bush flowers and plants by talented younger generation Central Australian artist Selina Teece Pwerle features at Everywhen over Easter while new works are arriving from around Australia for the Autumn Salon exhibition that follows.

“Selina’s glowing works are hugely appreciated by visitors to the gallery,” says Everywhen’s co director, Susan McCulloch. “Her work is amazing for its variety and finesse.”

Rich palettes, materials from nature and the soft hues of Autumn feature in the wide-ranging Autumn Salon exhibition of Aboriginal art from 9 regions that opens on April 9.

A number of Australia’s leading Aboriginal artists from the Central Desert, Arnhem Land, the Kimberley FNQ and south eastern Australia are represented along with a range of highly talented mid-career and rising star artists.

“Due to COVID, all of the 45 Aboriginal-owned art centres we represent were closed for most of last year,” says Susan.” Some artists were able to make a very small amount of art at home, or on an individual basis in their community studios, but art production virtually stopped for most of 2020 as artists took proactive steps to keep their communities safe.”

“Since they’ve been able to come back to their studios from mid-January, artists have been overjoyed to start making art again.”

“It’s fantastic to see these exuberant fresh and really great quality works after what has been a pretty challenging 12 months.”
