Anna Dowling Art Showcase
This year, the incredibly talented Anna Dowling will be showcased at the 9th Apology Breakfast.
Born in Adelaide, Anna is a descendant of the Badimia people of the Yamatji region in Western Australia. Working in ink on paper, she reflects on her cultural heritage and draws on traditional symbols and patterns.
Her series of three drawings, created especially for the Breakfast explore and reflect on the dispossession and dispersal of Aboriginal people and the impact of that loss upon the Survivors of the Stolen Generations.
Anna has graciously donated her drawing, "Our Journey" (above) in honour of the Stolen Generations. Throughout the morning, you will have the opportunity to bid for this piece in a Silent Auction. A starting price of $1200 has been set by Anna, and all proceeds will be donated to the Stolen Generations.
Anna's remaining two pieces in the series, "Infinite Line" and "Weaving" will also be available for purchase for $1200 at the breakfast.
