One leaflet in particular caught my eye though, and I was very excited to experience it's offerings.
Having always been interested in art in all it's forms, I thought how wonderful to be able to experience creating my own piece of Aboriginal Art.
The best part of the hour I spent with Binna, learning how to paint my canvas with a bamboo skewer, was the fabulous stories he told of his Kuku Yulanji culture, and more especially, his beloved Mum, Janbal, after whom the gallery is named. He obviously adored and respected his Mum, who sadly passed away in 2002. Some of Janbal's own art pieces are displayed in the gallery.
All the while, Binna was sitting opposite me, creating his own pieces and talking to me of his Mum, his life and his art. It was fascinating!
