On Saturday, Dr (and also dentist) Denise Salvestro did a floor talk at Griffith Regional Gallery to discuss the beautiful current exhibition there, entitled Balnhdhurr. We had a great crowd and Denise gave them a good history of the Buku Print Space in Yirrkala, where the work had been produced, while I added my bits about the making of some of the prints I have had something to do with over the 20+ years. We wish some of the talented Yolngu printers had been there too, but it is such a distance to come and the show is touring for a number of years.
Getting people to floor talks is like pulling teeth!
