Internationally renowned Tasmanian Indigenous artist Lola Greeno’s exhibition opens today at TMAG, showcasing breathtaking works using unusual and beautiful natural materials.
The exhibition marks the eighth instalment of the Australian Design Centre’s Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft series, a biennial recognition and national tour of an iconic artist whose body of work epitomises the best of various Australian craft fields.
The first Indigenous visual artist to receive the award of National Living Treasure, Ms Greeno’s award-winning talent is magnificently displayed in the exhibition’s 50 highly visual and textural works, each uniquely championing the traditions and culture of the Indigenous women of Cape Barren and Flinders Islands.
Lola Greeno: Cultural Jewels is on show at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG) until 22 July 2018.
