‘Stories of Country’ artworks from ‘The Blue Mountains’ Artists Camp’

The Woodford Academy is honoured to officially open a new permanent museum exhibit that provides an important Aboriginal perspective of local heritage and culture within the Blue Mountains oldest building.

This new permanent museum exhibit features original artworks by Darug man Chris Tobin and an original musical composition by Jacinta Tobin.

The museum exhibit launch will be accompanied by an exhibition ‘Stories of Country’ featuring artworks from ‘The Blue Mountains’ Artists Camp’, including works by Ben Croser, Lexodious Dadd, Teekee Marloo, Janelle Randall-Court, Nathan Summers, Chris Tobin, Leanne Tobin and David Yamandirra.

Join Uncle Graeme Cooper, Jacinta Tobin, Chris Tobin and representatives from the National Trust and the Woodford Academy as they reflect on our shared walk in telling our stories together for all of our futures.

The museum exhibit has been made possible with the assistance of a ‘Your Community Heritage Program’ grant from the Commonwealth Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities.
