Upcoming events

Small Bream Feeding, Digby Moran, 2016

'Past and Present' by Digby Moran, Art Exhibition

5 - 23 December 2016
SCU Learning Centre, Gallery Space

Exhibition opening Friday 9 December at 3.30 pm, Gallery Space, Learning Centre

The Library is proud to host 'Past and Present' by Digby Moran. This exhibition presents a new series of paintings in which he explores new techniques to tell his dreamtime stories.

Digby was raised on Cabbage Tree Island, a mission located on the Richmond River in north east NSW. His work has always been closely connected to his people and their past, telling the history of his Aboriginal community, life on a mission as a child and stories told to him by his family elders. Water, a most vital element in Bundjalung Dreamings, features prominently in his art.

His paintings have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in Lismore, Tweed and Grafton Regional Galleries, Roxy Gallery Kyogle, Northern Rivers Community Gallery, DACOU Gallery Alstonville, Boomaili Aborignal Artists Co-operative Sydney, galleries in Armidale and Kempsey and many others.

Digby's latest commission is to paint a mural for the $3million Ballina Aboriginal Child and Family Centre at West Ballina's Porter Park.

This collection reflects Digby's spiritual journey from early childhood to his later years.

Please RSVP to libby.pownall@scu.edu.au for catering purposes if you wish to attend the opening.
