Saltbush Country provides a rare opportunity to experience the works and worldviews of Aboriginal artists working independently across regional South Australia. Their works, curated by Tarnanthi Regional Curator Marika Davies, are the result of a series of community workshops, mentoring and professional development opportunities catering for prominent regional artists and supported by Tarnanthi and Country Arts SA.
In this exhibition, seven diverse artists tell stories of their culture, community and connection to Country. Often personal and occasionally raw, their work reflects the world as seen through their eyes while expressing their culture, language and community – a contemporary articulation of Aboriginal life in regional South Australia.
Artists: Josephine Lennon, Marli Macumba, Juanella McKenzie, Deanna Newchurch, Lynette Newchurch, Sandra Saunders, Heather Shearer
