Feb 9 – Apr 1 all-day
Star Picket Exhibition - Orange Regional Gallery @ Orange Regional Gallery | Orange | New South Wales | Australia

StarPicket Exhibition – Orange Regional Gallery

Star-Picket is a multi-form arts project recently funded by the Regional Arts Fund NSW,  created by both Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists in a cross cultural collaboration, investigating sky stories and mapping from the central west NSW, leading to interpretations of seasonal farming practices, and travel pathways based on this knowledge.

Curators Aleisha Lonsdale – Arts Out West and Phoebe Cowdery – the CORRIDOR project, have both previously collaborated together, engaging artists from both NSW and Cape York, on the COOL BURN exhibition in 2015-2016. COOL BURN was the first in a series of exhibitions documenting traditional knowledge and practices though a contemporary lens involving land art, soundscape, video, installation, painting, sculpture, photography, printing and assemblage, exhibited to the community in a remote regional location.

Star-picket is inspired by the astronomical translations of the night sky in relation to seasonal land management activity and physical pathways, through oral histories by Indigenous Traditional Owners and Elders in both the Central West NSW, and Lake Mungo NSW. The Artists intention is to investigate these aspects in a series of workshops and field trips located in the Central West – NSW and Lake Mungo – NSW.

Star-picket is a continuum of artistic development at the CORRIDOR project, working with Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists and related professionals on a cultural connections program developed in 2013 in conjunction with the Greater Eastern Ranges, Kanangra Boyd to Wyangala initiative. Workshops and exhibitions to date included in this program are River dreaming 2013, Traditional fire management 2013, Media and film training 2015, Cowra corroboree 2015, Cowra corroboree schools day, Orange Weavers 2016, Traditional dance 2016 facilitated by Di Nicholls Old Mapoon, and the COOL BURN exhibition 2016.

Mitch Grainger LIVE @ The Oxley @ The Oxley Wine Bar | Cowra | New South Wales | Australia

Mitch Grainger LIVE @ The Oxley

US based guitarist, singer and master harmonica player, Mitch Granger makes a long-awaited return to The Oxley after blowing away a packed crowd back in April of 2016.

Discovered by MALCOLM YOUNG of AC/DC at age 16 and later trained in the Alberts’ production tradition by HARRY VANDA, Mitch Grainger is one of Australia’s most talented and experienced Blues and Roots musicians, producers and performers.

After taking up the harmonica at age 14 Mitch became an integral part of Autralian blues outfits The Beefs (with Alex Lloyd), Bondi Cigars and Papa Lips, playing Australia’s premier music festivals, including Woodford and Byron Bay Blues and Roots Festival.

Through his long career Mitch has always stayed in demand as an educator and session musician, recording countless sessions, writing songs, and producing music with artists such as ROSA PULLMAN, PAPA LIPS, KARA GRAINGER, RICK PRICE, THE WRIGHTS, JOHN PAUL YOUNG and acclaimed Australian thespian, JACK THOMPSON.
Mitch is currently working on his 3rd solo Album, with the working title ‘Plug It In’, an electric blues rock album
that pays homage to the blues pioneers of the south, who followed the Mississippi river up to Chicago, plugged in
their instruments and electrified the delta blues, literally.

Don’t miss the chance to see this amazing musician in the intimate surrounds of The Oxley.
