A Dog's Life: Dion Beasley & Sketches from the Studio: Reg Mombassa
17th July - 23rd August 2009
Dion is an 18 year old Indigenous artist who lives in Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory. In A Dog's Life, Dion has created a delightful series of screen prints on paper depicting the life of dogs and other animals in his community. Dion has muscular dystrophy and is profoundly deaf, yet he is surmounting his challenges with the assistance of his carer, Joie Boulter. A Dog's Life captivates and delights, and highlights the wonderful contribution artists with disabilities make to our cultural and artistic life. A Dog's Life is toured by Artback NT: Arts Development and Touring. Further information on Dion can be obtained from his website: www.cheekydogs.com.au
Sketches from the Studio: Reg Mombassa includes a selection of Reg's sketches, framed works, and t-shirts. Including his notebook sketches in this exhibition allows us the unique opportunity to view the initial stages of Reg's artistic process through to framed work, and the application of his design in commercial merchandise. This exhibition presents art that is cheeky, sometimes challenging, but always full of fun. If you would like to find out more about Reg's work, please view his website: www.regmombassa.com.
