Join us on the opening reception of Wati Wara – Lawrence Pennington Solo and Tjungutja – Art of the Spinifex Collaborative on Thursday, 27th April, from 7:30 – 9.30pm here at ReDot Fine Art Gallery!
Wati Wara – Lawrence Pennington Solo is a collection of 29 recent paintings, celebrating the life of one of the most revered Indigenous men in Australia today. Lawrence Pennington is a senior lawman from the Tjuntjuntjara community, born circa 1934. This exhibition marks Lawrence’s first ever solo show since he started painting with the Spinifex Arts Project in 1999.
Tjungutja – Art of the Spinifex Collaborative is a series of eight collaborative paintings by the latest sensation that is sweeping the modern Indigenous art movement, the Spinifex Arts Project. The works that will be on display in Singapore have already – even before their commercial debut – been exhibited in a major museum in late 2015 at the Art Gallery of South Australia (AGSA).
The opening night will be attended in person by Winmati Roberts, Lawrence Pennington’s nephew, and Fred Grant, on behalf of the Spinifex Arts Project. Art Centre coordinators Amanda Dent and Brian Hallett will also be in attendance.
When: 27 Apr 2016, 7:30PM - 9:30PM
