NAIDOC week is an important time each year, where celebrations are held across Australia to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities but by all Australians. It’s a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
HHG Legal Group will be supporting NAIDOC week by launching the second HHG Artists in Residence exhibition and showcasing the works of a talented local Indigenous artist, Rosie Paine. Rosie’s artwork takes inspiration from the colours of country and the strength and wisdom of the world’s oldest living continuing culture. Rosie shares her love of connection, country, culture and creativity to all Australians and the Indigenous community through her artwork. Rosie is a Yilka woman from Cosmo Newberry, an Aboriginal community in the northeastern Goldfields of Western Australia. Rosie is a proud Noongar/Yamatji/Wongutha woman.
In November 2020, HHG Legal Group launched the HHG Artists in Residence program, as a response to the devastating effect of COVID-19 on the art industry. Always drawn to the creativity and talent of Western Australian artists, HHG Directors, Simon Creek and Murray Thornhill, made a commitment to WA’s artistic talent to provide support and help them emerge from the economic difficulties many are facing as a result of the pandemic.
Executive Chairman and creator of the HHG Artists in Residence program, Simon Creek said “We are proud to be celebrating NAIDOC week this year with the launch of the second HHG Artists in Residence exhibition. We welcome Rosie Paine who is a talented local Indigenous artist, with an important story to share through her works. She connects all Australians and the Indigenous community and we are delighted to have some of her art in our Perth CBD office.”
Special event viewing dates will be published shortly, however, Rosie’s art can be viewed at any time during business hours by appointment. If you would like a private viewing or be added to the HHG art exhibition mailing list please email firstname.lastname@example.org
