Kingaroy Regional Art Gallery Events
Beyond The Dots
September 1 @ 9:00 am - October 3 @ 4:00 pm AEST
“One Mob” by Niketa law
Celebrating her culture Niketa Law brings Beyond The Dots to the Gallery. Inspired, influenced, and incredibly proud of the artistic component of her culture she returns to the Gallery two years after her first exhibition. She wants to share her knowledge of her culture through her own art. Niketa, a self-taught Traditional Contemporary Aboriginal Artist is a proud Bindal/Bigambul woman from Cherbourg, Queensland, and loves to exhibit locally.
Niketa explains, “Traditional stories guide my work, and as a contemporary traditional aboriginal artist I am influenced by the past and the present. Every piece I have produced has a unique story.”
The Gallery will include the storyline for each painting to guide the visitor through Niketa’s exploration of Aboriginal Culture and Aboriginal Art.
She says “my technique is derived from my knowledge of common Aboriginal Artworks and stories witnessed in my earlier years. My paintings are a spiritual representation of my own storytelling built on feelings, values, circumstances, and that of stories that have been passed down over the years.”
This painting is to show the many shades of Aboriginal people. The lines around the middle section are to showcase us being a proud standing shoulder to shoulder as First Nations people. The sections that are by themselves are to signify the mob who may be ‘lost’ who think they are all alone but they aren’t, they just have to find their way home.
DUE TO COVID-19 Restrictions on numbers, the Gallery will no longer be hosting the Open Day on Saturday 5th September 2020. We will still be open from 10.00 am – 4.00 pm Monday to Friday.
We look forward to your visit during these times to see the 3 latest exhibitions.
