Wiradjuri Cloaks & Headdresses

Artists Lynette Riley and Diane Riley-McNaboe invite visitors and residents to the Opening Night of their exhibition of Wiradjuri cloaks and headdresses.

The evening will include an artist talk. The artwork is of importance to local and regional Wiradjuri people: it forms an important and re-emerging part of their history and skills set.

 

The exhibition includes examples of cloaks, headdresses and belts that were traditionally made and used by Wiradjuri people. It is an wonderful opportunity to hear their stories.
