Feature artwork 

Places of Gathering by Cassandra Halden, an independent artist, is the feature piece for this exhibition.

“Places of Gathering are different places around the country, where Aboriginal people meet for different reasons.

You have meeting places and you have camping, fishing or swimming places. Each spot has a landmark, like a hill, tree or even a river". 

 

About the artist

 Cassandra Halden 800px.jpg

Cassandra started painting at the age of 12, when she attended boarding school and was inspired by the creation of dreamtime stories into art.

Cassandra paints to get more of a feeling of her country. She says, "painting my country, plants and animals gives me a greater connection to the country".
