Balmain/Rozelle Art & Fashion week comes to our gallery

Thanks to all who joined us at kate owen gallery last night, I think we can honestly say that everyone had a fabulous time!

Charlie came along and provided some music on the didgeridoo (and his famous didgeribone) accompanied by the violin, but also gave a talk on the finer details of how kinship in Aboriginal communities works.

Kate also gave a wonderfully insightful speech about what really happens behind the scenes in the aboriginal art world, how she selects the paintings, the different players in the industry, explaining what to look out for to make sure a work is authentic and many other things.

Kurun Wurun & Clinton entertained the crowd by providing us with some traditional music, singing and dancing.  Some of the men in the audience even joined in to learn the emu and kangaroo dance, with a bit of practise we might hire them for future events! Kurun also drew much attention by painting for those who were able to stay back a little later.

So thanks again for helping us to enjoy such a wonderful event!

If you missed out please join us tomorrow and Kurun returns to continue painting in the gallery from 11.30am to 2pm tomorrow.
