Markers of Life

Markers of Life installation view
November 24 - December 12 2012

A focus exhibition of Australian Indigenous ceremonial poles and paintings from the collection that showcase the growing contemporary Indigenous works belonging to Newcastle Art Gallery.

In recent years, the collection has grown through the generosity of benefactors who have been collecting such pieces as Mimih Spirit poles, Lorkon hollow logs and Yawkyawk all of which are from Indigenous communities throughout the Northern Territory. The addition of these works into the collection further develops the existing Indigenous art collection. Works include new painting acquisitions by artists Prince of Wales and Sally Gabori.
