Girringun Exhibition Canopy Artspace, Cairns, 2010

Emerging from the rainforest canopy and a culture spanning countless generations, the work of Girringun artists is attracting a lot of attention. The stories and environments of this ancient culture are being transformed into visual images and designs by weavers, painters, potters, textile artists and makers of traditional objects. A continuing close connection to place and honouring Aboriginal law and culture provides inspiration for art work which embraces traditional and contemporary concepts.Girringun Aboriginal Art Centre represents artists from nine Traditional Owner Groups: the Nywaigi; Gugu Badhun; Warrgamay; Warungnu; Bandjin; Girramay; Gulgnay; Jirrbal; and Djiru people.
