Bathurst Regional Art Gallery
Bathurst Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) presents Home. Home was developed with local schools and the Wiradjuri community as part of the program Home: Aboriginal art from New South Wales.
The Home Program is a collaboration between the Art Gallery of New South Wales, NSW Department of Education’s Arts Unit, Wiradjuri community at Wagga Wagga and Aboriginal communities and regional galleries across NSW. It connects schools to local Aboriginal artists, community, language and culture. In 2023 the program was realised on Wiradjuri country at Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, Anaiwan country at New England Regional Art Museum, Kamilaroi/Gomeroi country at Tamworth Regional Gallery and Gathang (Worimi and Biripi) country at Manning Regional Art Gallery.
Home at BRAG showcases work made over the year-long program by students from Carcoar, Hampton, O’Connell, Sofala, Spring Hill, and Wattle Flat Public Schools.
In August, students participated in culture and language workshops at the gallery with Wiradjuri Elder Aunty Gloria Dindima Rogers and art making workshops with Wiradjuri Elder Aunty Ronda Sharpe. Students created tree-branch loom weavings with recycled and reclaimed materials, intertwining colour and texture into landscapes and stories framed by found branches.
Home opens at BRAG on Friday 15 December, 6pm and continues to Sunday 11 February 2024.
