__  First Nations Artisan Markets - New Seller!

Join us on June 12 and welcome our new addition to the roster, Amelia from Rose Creations!

After the horrible experience of losing her job during the increased COVID restrictions in 2020, Bundjalung woman, Amelia Otton, decided to occupy her time learning how to weave. With an inherent flair for all things creative, weaving came to her naturally. While keeping up with her uni studies, the insatiable desire to create using other materials quickly became her passion project. 

Fast forward to 2021, Amelia has now graduated with a Bachelor of Law with Honours AND her project known as Rose Creations, is blooming!

UPCOMING __
__ NAIDOC Week: Artist Collaboration with Harry Frith

We've got something special lined up for NAIDOC Week in July!

If you missed it, have a read below and find out what the collaboration is all about 👇

It was late last year that ex-pat Buderim artists Harry Frith and Birrunga Wiradyuri caught up for the first time in well over 4 decades.

Harry was exhibiting landscape stills in his inimitable Spaghetti Western style of extreme panoramas.

“Harry really gets Country, it’s obvious in his works... it's there as clear as day”, Birrunga thought.

From there conversations and plans developed to work together and, at a minimum, host a new show of Frith’s landscapes at Birrunga Gallery.

An agreement has been struck for Harry to insert himself into a project that will serve as ’the next part’ of the gallery’s unique 3-year Cultural Creative Development Program. The rest will be history when the combined show opened at Birrunga Gallery as a preemptive 2021 NAIDOC event on July 3.

"We are so pleased to able to expose Kane and Stevie to an artist of Harry’s calibre, and likewise Harry with them. Harry and I both grew up on Buderim in the 1960s and 70s when it was a very different place with an extraordinarily healthy and diverse arts community.

Both Kane and Stevie are Kabi Kabi on the paternal side, I have long-standing responsibility to Kabi Kabi Country, Peoples and Ancestors - both Harry and I also know Country pretty well. Added to the mix as Elder in Residence, Traditional Owner, and Kabi Kabi Elder is Uncle Brian Warner. He has agreed to work alongside us again on this project, offering counsel and guidance to the younger artists as well as us old fellas." Birrunga enthused.

Harry Frith: A cinematographer recently returned from living and working in Los Angeles as a DOP. Harry filmed many documentaries, TV shows and films that have been aired from CNN to CBS.

Harry now resides in Queensland and took time to dedicate full time to landscape photography. A very intense journey exploring the rural area of Biarra. Trees and hills bathed in afternoon light. A magic land. Being immersed daily in the landscape was a journey of emotional and visual importance to Harry. The land seemed to stand still as the light moved across it.

The shadows hiding emotions yet revealing a great depth and feeling of what lies beyond the apparent. Harry spent 22 years in Hollywood working with some the greatest filmmakers in the world. Coming home has given Harry the opportunity to work on projects that are meaningful with the hope of bringing understanding and happiness to a world in turmoil through expressing the joy of freedom and open spaces. Clean air and blue skies.

In Harry's own words:

“I'm about to embark on a dream photographic project with artists Birrunga Wiradyuri, Stevie O’chin, and Kane Brunjes.

The project is designed to illustrate our place in the environment and the emotions that we bring as people that exist in this ancient land. Both artists express great feelings and depth with their art and as sentient humans that have found art with traditional links to their ancestors. The idea is to show Kane and Stevie photographically on their Country and significant sites, absorbing the true feeling of what it is to be one with nature and to express feelings of what is and what was. The landscape we photograph will include them, the land, the stories and their heritage.

Part of the emotional journey that they transpose onto canvas. Birrunga will be debut directing, I’ll be photographing and filming supplementary documentary footage with Kane and Stevie producing visual works for the show. So far our journey has been a dream collaboration.

Four artists learning from each other about what is important to us. Our Cultures, art, feelings and the land. We are hoping to express our understanding of where we live and where we came from and who we are. A window into a view of a holistic world of man and nature.”

Thank you for your ongoing support.
Our venue serves as a safe space for everyone to enjoy.
