AN exciting month is coming up for Mornington-based Aboriginal art group, Baluk Arts, as artists prepare to show off their works for the ‘On the MAP’ (Mornington Arts Precinct) project 10am-4pm Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 November.
The event is dedicated to showcasing the region’s creative talents and offers the chance for weekend visitors to the peninsula to view the artwork, meet the artists and even have a go at making a weaving or painting a boomerang.
Baluk Arts’s newest recruit, administration officer Tallara Gray, a descendant of the Yadhaigana People of Cape York, will also present her work for the MAP event.
Tallara, who graduated from the Queensland University of Technology last year, makes jewellery, sculptures and mixed media works from various materials.
Also on the same weekend, some of the Baluk artists will be at the Black Arts Market at Carriageworks in Redfern,NSW, representing Indigenous artists of south east Melbourne, Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula.
Baluk Arts opens Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm at 6 Bruce St, Mornington.
