Yuendumu artists visit

This visit marked an important milestone for our MCG Fellowship. Kate Daw and I were delighted to welcome artist and teacher's Cecily Granites and Elsie Granites down from Yuendumu. Chantelle Robertson and Nikitta Granites also came down courtesy of the excellent Mt. Theo project.

Cecily and Elsie were in town to discuss two ambitious temporary artworks planned for 2011.
Basil Sellers came through from Sydney to meet them and the National Sports Museum hosted a group of project supporters and friends of Cecily and Elsie at the MCG. It was a bit wet for free flowing footy and Liam Jurrah was still injured but great company - Chris McCauliffe, Cameron Schwab, Jon Campbell, Rupert Betheras, Ruth Bain, Simon Maidment, Bruce and Ria McKinnon...

The next stage is a trip to Yuendumu in August when Kate and I will be joined by MCG groundsman Tony Gordon and National Sports Museum curator Helen Walpole. Very excited !
