'The Gabori Sisters, Gathering By the Sea' will celebrate the creative legacy of Sally Gabori and the work of her three daughters Elsie, Amanda and Dorothy Gabori.
Regional audiences will have the opportunity to go on a journey to the artists’ homeland of Bentinck Island in Queensland’s Gulf of Carpentaria. Through specially designed interactive hands-on making and multimedia activities, young visitors will be introduced to the unique and important relationship the Kaiadilt people share with the sea and the creatures who inhabit the waters around the Island.
Coinciding with this program, the regional touring exhibition titled ‘My Country, I Still Call Australia Home: Contemporary Art from Black Queensland’, includes a work by Sally Gabori, and will tour until December 2017.
‘The Gabori Sisters, Gathering By the Sea’ is a free program and can be facilitated during the period, January – April 2017. Venues can choose whether to deliver ‘Kids on Tour’ from one day up to a week-long program during the exhibition period.
