This year the Murri Connections and Nandjimadji Art Groups will showcase their artwork at Beulah Gallery, Buderim during NAIDOC week July 8-12. The artists use an array of contemporary techniques to piece together their designs.  

The Murri Connections and Nandjimadji Art Groups are local and Brisbane-based Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, experiencing or caring for someone who is living with a mental illness, disability or who is frail aged. 

Aunty Maggie Veitch will showcase her work during the exhibition, this year submitting four unique and contemporary aboriginal art pieces. Maggie enjoys spending her time with the mob every Thursday and appreciates the creative process of painting modern aboriginal artworks.   

One of her most unique pieces on display this year is called Caterpillar Party. The design is painted on flat board, with a black background and bright green textured fragments bringing the artwork to life. Maggie explains, “the painting was a journey, there was supposed to be layers of leaves and stems, but they ended up being shaped into beautiful caterpillars.”   

The Murri Connections and Nandjimadji Art Groups are a close community who have formed strong friendships. They create a space where attendees are free to explore their thoughts, ideas and feelings. This year’s exhibition is called Wahroonga meaning My Place, a name which resonates with its many members 

The exhibition opening will take place on Monday July 8 at 1 pm. For more information please see our Facebook event.
