CAN is pleased to announce that The Bush Babies Elders Portrait Exhibition is part of Art On the Move’s touring program from 2016 – 2018.
The exhibition features a collection of portrait paintings, photographs and short stories honouring Wheatbelt Elders who were born in the Bush.
The exhibition has already been included in the programs of four galleries.
Katanning Art Gallery from April 6 – May 15, 2016.

The Bush Babies exhibition was inspired by a photograph and portrait painting of Hazel Winmar, a Ballardong Elder affectionately known as Nana Purple.
The much loved Elder sadly passed away in 2014 and the exhibition continues as a tribute to her memory and to all the other much loved Elders who have left us.
