Indij-N-Arts is an indigenous owned mobile art gallery which serves the south-east Queensland area. Proprietor and artist John Pene Fonmosa was on hand on Saturday, June 15, at the Mitchelton Library Re-Opening along with a wonderful exhibition. Indij-N-Arts artists are inspired and influenced by their connections with the land, the ocean and the rivers where they reside. The artists are from the Bundjalung, Kamilaroi, Yuggera, and Yumatji Gnarloo tribal areas of Australia.
This gallery includes depictions of turtles, goannas, fish, kingfishers, fire, dancers, beaches, and mangroves. The creatures depicted in the gallery are at risk of becoming extinct as pollution and other factors deplete their numbers. We are all in a position to help where we can, so let’s keep conservation uppermost and support the preservation of these beautiful creatures and their environments.
