The Wiradjuri Sisters exhibition is an exciting collection of works in acrylics, collage and printmaking by Indigenous artists Naomi Grant and Krishna Heffernan.
The show is a combination of the creative passion of sisters who live on opposite sides of the country.
Life and distance have kept them geographically separated, but they share their love and enthusiasm for each other and the creative arts through their work and teaching others.
Naomi has been an artist for more than 40 years while Krishna has been developing her art practice for the last 10 years.
Both work in collage and acrylic techniques to develop layers of colours, pattern and design with paper and paint. The landscape creates endless inspiration for them.
See the Wiradjuri Sisters exhibition at the Roxy Gallery in Kyogle from February 4-March 6. The official opening is on February 5 at 2pm where Krishna will talk about her artwork.
