Old stories, new light, Glasshouse Regional Gallery – Port Macquarie 2016
It is with great pleasure that the Glasshouse Regional Gallery presents Old Stories, New Light, an exhibition of recent works by Milton Budge and Blak Douglas. The exhibition continues the Glasshouse Regional Gallery’s commitment to presenting quality artistic experiences for our community and supporting contemporary Australian artists and Aboriginal culture.
This project like many started with a conversation, a passionate Blak Douglas described his idea of reconnecting with his Country (Dhungatti) and heritage by yarning with Uncle Milton Budge. I was excited with this idea and thought it was an important collaborative project to include in the Glasshouse Regional Gallery program.
In May this year Blak Douglas spent a week at the Glasshouse as an artist in residence, where he presented his captivation Adamriginal performance to a number of local primary schools and the Biripi Youth Group. During this week Blak Douglas spent time yarning with Uncle Milton Budge.
