About

To celebrate the opening of Saltwater Freshwater Arts 2021: Aboriginal Art Award & Contemporary Cultural Objects, guest speaker and Invited Curator Alison Williams will present a casual floor talk discussing the works on display. Alison is a proud Gumbaynggirr woman and has had a love of painting and drawing from a young age as a way of expression of her personal impressions, dreams and experiences. Born in Sydney in 1968, she grew up in Wollongong, however always harbored a feeling of belonging to her mother's family & country, the northern lowlands of Gumbaynggirr Nation. This feeling brought her to the North Coast of NSW to settle, establishing her studio and continuing her artistic & professional development strengthening roots within the community to teach, advocate, support family and artistic practice in regional NSW.
