Redbud Arts Center and Booker-Lowe Art will present their first joint exhibition, "Ancient Lands . . . Ageless Stories," featuring paintings by leading and emerging Australian indigenous artists.

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the beginning of Australia’s contemporary Aboriginal art movement, the exhibit showcases works by such acclaimed painters as Rosella Namok, Silas Hobson, and Fiona Omeenyo from Lockhart River near the northern tip of the Great Barrier Reef, as well as established and emerging artists, including Jeffrey Jangala Gallagher, Theo (Faye) Nangala Hudson, and Joycie Pitjarra Morton, from Australia’s vast desert country. The exhibition will also include a selection of older works, some just released from private collections.

Australia’s First Nation artists draw on their heritage as the world’s oldest living culture, with a 50,000-year history of drawing on cave walls, in the sand, on bark, and on their bodies for ceremony.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until December 30.
