After what seems like a decade of research and a lifetime of interest in the visual history of my Aboriginal ancestors, I take great pleasure in inviting you to the opening of The National Picture: the Art of Tasmania’s Black War, an exhibition co-curated with Tim Bonyhady for the National Gallery of Australia.

This exhibition will open at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery on Thursday 16 August.

Your presence would be a very welcome contribution to celebrating this event.
