Patsy Chulugu and Arthur Que Noy: Art and Stories

Exhibition: On show until Sunday 5 JulyPatsy Chulugu's painting

In their first major exhibition, Patsy Chulugu and Arthur Que Noy share their art and stories for their Daly River country in the Northern Territory. Patsy is a Brinkin woman who grew up on the Daly River. Arthur was born in Darwin and worked on the wharf for over 30 years. He was also a bushman and regularly visited the Daly River, looking after his country
as a Kamu Elder.

Patsy's evocative paintings tell stories about country and the animals that represent Dreamings and places.

Arthur passed away in August 2014 but was keen to tell the story of his peoples' struggles following the arrival of Europeans in the Daly River area. This exhibition is privileged to include one of Arthur's last paintings, 'The Massacre', about the massacre of Woolwonga (Kamu) people at the Daly River Copper Mine in 1884.

Unfinished-BusinessUnfinished Business – stories from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability

Tuesday 9 June – Sunday 30 August

Mr Nathan Barrett MLA – Member for Blain (representing the Minister for Disability Services) invites you to the Australian launch of the Unfinished Business Exhibition which reveals the visual stories of 30 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander persons with disability.  Through their involvement in the project each participant draws much-needed attention to critical issues that impact on their lives. Each participant's story is complex and intertwined with Australia's political and social history, which has resulted in today's high rates of disability in Aboriginal and Torres Strait communities.

Visit the Unfinished Business website for more information.
