Lola Greeno’s award-winning talent in shell-working is magnificently displayed in Cultural Jewels with highly visual and textural works, each uniquely championing the traditions and culture of the Indigenous women of Tasmania’s Cape Barren and Flinders Islands. The overarching theme of Lola Greeno: Cultural Jewels is storytelling; the meticulous crafting of stories of cultural knowledge, natural beauty, ancient traditions, and connectedness with her island home.

Lola Greeno: Cultural Jewels is an Australian Design Centre national touring program developed in partnership with the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, Launceston.

Launch: Friday 22 September, 6pm-8pm

RSVP appreciated
