'The Lurujarri Dreaming Trail - Living Country"

An exhibition of drawings, paintings, prints and journal extracts from Jeanné Browne follows the Lurujarri Heritage Trail on the Northwestern Kimberley Coast.

This exhibition celebrates the Lurujarri Heritage Trail established in 1987 as a cross-cultural bridge established by Goolarabooloo traditional custodian Paddy Roe O.M.A. to protect a section of the Song Cycle along the coast north of Broome, WA.

Images are taken from the visual diaries (1992 - 2012) of artist Jeanné Browne and reflect aspects of her cultural immersion with the Goolarabooloo community of Broome, who maintain a dynamic and living relationship with their country.

The focus of this exhibit is upon local reading of the country, in its six-seasonality and site-specific cultural stories.

The show opens Wed April 18th, 6-9pm, at Synergy Gallery,
253 High St., Northcote, next to the Northcote Uniting Church .

The exhibit will continue until Sunday May 6th, 2012,
Opening hours Wed - Sun. 11-4pm.
