Join Blake Society member, Rev Dr Doug Purnell OAM, on a tour of 'Gifts of the Artists: Indigenous works from the Warmun Community'. Tour details are below:

Date: Saturday 18 May, 2013

Time: 2.30-3.30pm

Venue: McGlade Gallery, Australian Catholic University, 25a Barker Street, Strathfield

Cost: FREE

'Gifts of the Artists' is an exhibition of important indigenous art.  It offers insight into the positive interactions between Indigenous people and Christian missionary activity.

Doug says: 'This artwork is important because it is a positive story about missionary work over fifty years, and it is intriguing for the Aboriginal community’s use of the word ‘two-way’ when talking of their Christian faith and their traditional culture...'

Doug will conduct a tour and help people to look and interact with the exhibition and then talk about what the work says to us.
