Kindness is a Boomerang | Dan Withey | SALA Festival Finalist
SOLO EXHIBITION by Dan Withey
July 29 – August 27, 2021
OPENING Postponed | Thursday 29 July, 6-8pm
Withey's new body of work depicts multifaceted characters, amusing in their eccentric humanity. He continues
his investigation of abstract and figurative storytelling through anthropomorphic, playful forms such as birds, rainbows
But the lightness and fun of his "mad quirky paintings" is balanced by a rich inner world and sincere investigation of
our challenging realities. The work is grounded in a sense of place, with the significant influence of Adelaide. Kindness is a Boomerang’s bright, eccentric paintings are rich with Withey’s own visual language. Through his works we find our way through the vacillating absurdities of life.

Iriti-nguru nintini kuwari-kutu
Translation: 'Showing the past in the present'
7 – 29 October, 2021
OPENING | Thursday 7 October, 6-8pm
Ernabella Arts (Pukatja), on the Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands of South Australia, is Australia’s oldest, continuously running First Nations art centre.
A key element of this longevity is the passing down of cultural knowledge from older artists and family members to the younger generations. For Tarnanthi 2021, early-career, emerging and established artists present paintings and works in diverse media that highlight connections and knowledge-sharing between old and young.
