The Reconcilation Wall in the Fountain Court is proud to host To make a mark, an exhibition of artists from Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Co-operative

On display from Wednesday 7 April until Thursday 20 May, To make a mark showcases the work of Annette Kennedy, Sharon Smith, Joe Hurst, Jude Jarrett, Sooty Welsh, Jai Walker and Luke Close across a variety of mediums, including printmaking, acrylic, woodwork, ceramics and mixed media.

On of the exhibiting artists, Annette Kennedy, discusses the themes behind her artworks: 

'The Goanna features predominantly in Aboriginal Mythology (and or Dreaming stories) and Australian Folklore. Being
predatory lizards, goannas are quite large, or at least bulky, with teeth and claws. In my case the Goanna represents a spiritual significance a sacred symbol that represents my mob within our very large nation.'
