Colours of My Country

Vibrant new Aboriginal art from 20 art centres of the Central, Western and Eastern deserts, Far North Queensland, the APY Lands, Utopia, the Pilbara, the Kimberley, Tiwi Islands, Arnhem Land and Victoria celebrating the diverse colours, styles and countries of Aboriginal art.

The Mornington Peninsula's specialised Aboriginal art gallery EVERYWHEN Artspace is the new exhibiting space of Susan McCulloch and Emily McCulloch Childs of Whistlewood Gallery and features acrylics, barks, ochres, works on paper and 3D from 30 + leading Aboriginal-owned art centres.

EVERYWHEN is named in tribute to the anthropologist W.E.H Stanner who, in his 1953 essay 'The Dreaming' in describing the nature of time as it relates to the Aboriginal belief system, said 'One cannot "fix" The Dreaming in time, it was and is everywhen." *

As well as regular changing displays of largely Aboriginal art, we present exhibitions, talks, art parades, in conversations and other events.
