Saltwater Freshwater Exhibition
Showcasing 15 upcoming Aboriginal Artists, and presented by award-winning artists, Garry Purchase and Kylie Cassidy.

Artists:

Garry Purchase

Garry is a proud Aboriginal man of Dharawal descent. He grew up in Sydney's Eastern suburbs in Botany and was raised amongst the Aboriginal community of La Perouse. Garry is a member of the Timbery family of which there are many respected members.

Garry has always had a creative passion and was a musician for many years playing drums in a few Sydney rock bands. Artistically, he first started painting after he moved to the Central Coast with his wife and 3 sons in 2013.

His style is a more modern take on traditional Aboriginal art, steering away from the common dreamtime stories and focusing on his own personal journey, experiences and social issues that pushes a lot of creative boundaries as he stretches the limits of what Aboriginal art can be.

He has a very loyal fan base and has thousands of followers on social media and his works have attracted a lot of attention and have also earned him many awards. He took out the major first prize Tony Donovan Award at Reconciliation Exhibition at Gosford Regional Gallery in both 2014 and 2016. Garry has been the recipient of the Aboriginal Health Award at the Mental Health Artworks Art Exhibition 3 times. Garry is currently a finalist in the Gosford Art Prize.

Some of Garrys recent successes include a guest role on Playschool , collaboration with homewares supplier Ladelle launching some really amazing products, collaboration with The Koori Curriculum / The Aboriginal Early Childhood Collective as a their artist in residence as well as supplying the artwork for their very successful books and marketing campaigns, designer of the indigenous range of balls for Footys4All

Kylie Cassidy:

Kylie Cassidy is a proud wiradjuri woman who grew up on the central coast.
She’s been painting since age was 13 and has won several awards including first prize youth award At 17 and the Tony Donovan encouragement award at 19.
