Ochre Women, an exhibition of 10 First Nations women, living or culturally associated with Gai-mariagal Country, Northern Beaches. Through the use of charcoal, pastel and ochre, portrait drawings are applied to large eco-dye fabrics, which is an expression of the artist's expression of love and connection to the original culture of this land. Using natural mediums within modern art techniques, this exhibition highlights the life and achievements in celebration of these amazing First Nations women. The exhibition will feature talks and workshops from some of the women in focus. As an artist, they would like to pay respect to these women and help share their story with the wider community. This event is fully endorsed by the Gunyadu First Nations Women’s Aboriginal Corporation and supported by the Gai-maragal Group.
