A Cuppa with Vernon
Saturday 22 February, 12.30pm – 2pm
In celebration of the 2020 NSW Seniors Festival and the closing weekend of Campbelltown Arts Centre’s exhibition, Vernon Ah Kee – The Island, Macarthur over 55’s are invited to enjoy a distinctly Australian afternoon to be hosted by acclaimed artist Vernon Ah Kee.
Vernon Ah Kee is one of the most prominent and important living artists in Australia today. Spanning almost two decades, Vernon Ah Kee’s The Island profiles Ah Kee’s brilliantly diverse practice, offering challenging perspectives on contemporary Australian life and a critique of Australia’s tendency to shift issues off shore.
The afternoon tea will begin with a Welcome to Country and an exhibition tour led by Ah Kee, followed by discussions around key themes from the exhibition, facilitated by local Aboriginal Elders. These table discussions will take place in the galleries and will be flavoured by gourmet teas and finger food to be supplied by the Arts Centre Café and the Tharawal community kitchen.
