Look at The Sun

This artwork by Jenny Fraser is part of Lismore Regional Gallerys latest exhibition called I Saw The Sun East Coast. It reflects the exhibitions focus on water.

Water and waterways are significant in Aboriginal culture and lifestyle. White Australians are now also becoming aware of the importance of water to our very survival.

Curated by Bundjalung man Djon Mundine, I Saw The Sun East Coast exhibits the works of artists Fiona Foley, Ian Abdulla, Vincent Serico, Jenny Fraser, Francis Belle Parker and Digby Moran. They communicate the contemporary realities of indigenous artists and their relationship to land and water.

Watercourses defined the original movements and settlement patterns of the first peoples, and set one people aside from another. At the beginning of time different languages developed on different sides of rivers, said Mr Mundine.

I Saw The Sun East Coastwill be opened by Djon Mundine this Friday, February 16, from 5.30-8pm.

Entertainment will be provided by Widjibul Dancers and the Widjibul Jahgoon band.

Therell also be a floor talk by Djon Mundine this Saturday, February 17, at 11am.

The exhibition runs until Saturday, March 17.
