Daughter of the Lightning Snake
19 February - 14 August 2022
Noŋgirrŋa Marawili is regarded as one of the most important artists in Australia today. Working from the extraordinary landscape of her home in Yirrkala, north-eastern Arnhem Land, Marawili captures the atmospheric forces of water, wind and ocean as a celebration of Country and culture.
Daughter of the Lightning Snake represents a partnership between Maitland Regional Art Gallery, the Geoffrey Hassell Collection and Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka Centre.
The work from this exhibition is on loan from the Geoffrey Hassell Collection and facilitated by Robert Hirschmann.
