Overview

Port Pirie Regional Gallery is proud to present Manggan – gather, gathers, gathering, the first national touring exhibition of contemporary works by award-winning artists from the Girringun Aboriginal Arts Centre, Cardwell, QLD.

The Girringun artists’ superbly handcrafted works, displayed alongside collection objects and historic photographs from the South Australian Museum, provide a unique opportunity for regional South Australia to view and engage with the distinctive Aboriginal rainforest art traditions and culture from the Girringun region of far north Queensland.

"Emerging from a rainforest canopy, Manggan - gather, gathers, gathering is a remarkable collaborative exhibition of contemporary artworks from the Girringun Aboriginal Art Centre and historic collection material from the South Australian Museum,” said exhibition curator, Dr Valerie Boll.
