RECEPTION: Pattern Thinking – Aboriginal Artists at the Sarah Moody Gallery of Art
October 11 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree and open to the public.
Join us Thursday, October 11, 5-7 p.m., in Garland Hall 103 for the opening reception for the exhibition, Pattern Thinking: Australian Aboriginal Art from the Collection of Tom and Cynthia Schneider, which runs October 11 – November 16, 2018. The exhibition features work by Australian Aboriginal artists such as Elizabeth Kngwarreye, Johnny Possum Tjapaltjarri and Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri, one of the founders of the Western Desert Art Movement. The exhibition’s title comes from a concept named by modern Aboriginal elders. “Pattern thinking,” in the Australian Aboriginal world, embodies the idea of the interrelationship of nature and culture and the sacredness of both.
Curator Anne Keener will speak about the exhibition and the art on Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. in Lloyd Hall 226.
