Where: Carclew Foyer Gallery
Curator: Olivia Kubiak
Artists: Anna Dowling, Lydia Carabetta and students who participated in an Aboriginal Art Program at Port Lincoln High School in 2013

Carclew’s latest exhibition Young Storytellers is curated by curator-in-residence Olivia Kubiak showcasing works by artists Anna Dowling and Lydia Carabetta and students who participated in an Aboriginal Art Program at Port Lincoln High School in 2013. 

Anna Dowling and Lydia Carabetta are two emerging Aboriginal artists whose work could not be more visually different. Anna is an artist working predominantly in ink on paper and uses traditional symbols from her Yamatji, Badimia heritage to explore the ongoing impacts of colonisation that Aboriginal people continue to face. Through her work, she aims to preserve cultural knowledge and identity. By expressing the memories and stories of her own family, she also reveals the beauty of her Aboriginal heritage through art.  

Lydia is a photographer whose work focuses on her experiences with the flora and fauna by which she is surrounded. Her fascination with the wild enables her to capture animals at their most unique. She aims to tell stories through her photographs and patiently waits for the perfect moment. 

The Aboriginal Art Program at Port Lincoln is a voluntary program offered to year 8, 9 and 10 students to enhance engagement in learning and empower them to improve and retain their attendance. It provides an alternative educational and vocational pathway for our Aboriginal students. The artworks they produce explore connections with culture, identity, family and place. The artworks connect the students with their learning in other curriculum areas, including literacy and numeracy.

Works offered for sale and can be purchased at Carclew's reception desk.
