  • (4.5 stars) Reminding you that intergenerational transmission of knowledge doesn’t have to be traumatic, Wagga Wagga Art Gallery are running Miyagan: Relations. This exhibition celebrates artistic knowledge and skills bring passed down through generations with pieces from seven Aboriginal families. Aunty Lucy Connelly Williams from Waradjere land lined one wall with colourful Dillybags (2019–20), while her daughter, Lorraine Connelly-Northey explores the bag form using rusted and burnt tin, mesh and wire on an adjacent wall. Lorraine takes the practical to conceptual in her piece called narrbang-galang (many bush baskets) (2019–20). Star of the show is Emily Johnson from Barkindji land, whose work, Blak Future Mood (2018–20) appears alongside work from her grandfather. Emily’s funky series of interconnected panels, explores virtual reality and futuristic ways of living blak. Downstairs you can visit Hardenvale—our home in Absurdia by Catherine O’Donnell, Kellie O’Dempsey & Todd Fuller. It’s a homage to the 1960s Western Sydney fibro shack—just like the one I spent my own childhood in.
  • Free entry, closed on Mondays. Parking about 3 minutes walk away. Amazing gallery, busy during peak hours.
