UMI Arts, celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2015, presents new exhibitions by Lynelle Flinders, Paul Bong and Samuel Savage.

Visit UMI Arts Gallery of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art to view three exciting new exhibitions; ‘Virtuous Women’ by Lynelle Flinders, ‘Yidinji Bigun Gijar’ (Yidinji Shield Paintings) by Paul Bong, and ‘Cultural Awakenings’ by Samuel Savage.

Lynelle is a descendant of the Dharrba Warra Clan from the Starke River area north of Cooktown. In 2010, Lynelle enrolled at TAFE in Cairns in Cert III in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Cultural Arts course. She then went on to complete Cert III in Micro Business & the Certificate IV in TAE (Training and Assessment) and graduated with her Diploma in Indigenous Visual Arts in 2012. "Virtuous Women" is a display of Lynelle's current practice as a textile artist and showcases textile works with relief printing, hand-cut paper techniques and patterns printed from natural materials.

Paul Bong “Bindur Bullin”, is a Yidinji Gimuy Elder and artist. His people lived in the region south of Cairns since pre-contact times. In 1994, Paul graduated from Cairns TAFE, with an Associated Diploma in Visual Arts. His love for art and its valued techniques work well with his ancestral history. Paul Bong’s long awaited solo exhibition “Yidinji Bigunu Gijar” is a collection of unrelated works on paper referencing his culture, especially presenting the iconic shields of the rainforest region of Cairns, south to Babinda, west to Atherton Tablelands, Mareeba and to Djabuguy Country.

Samuel Tainga Toa Savage (my name sake) is the Eldest Son of Samuel Tainga Toa Savage from "Dudamud" Village, "Erub" (Darnley Island) in the Eastern Torres Strait Islands. Samuel's mother is Leila Ambrum from Thursday Island. His Totems are the Koedal (Crocodile), Gowei (Pelican) and Beuger (Booby Bird).

Samuel Savage presents a small collection of headdresses and works on paper in his show titled ‘Cultural Awakenings’ which will be on display in UMI Arts' Window Gallery, on Sheridan Street.

These exhibitions will remain on display until 24 June, 2015.
