Guest writer: What’s on in Queensland? Bugai Whyoulter at the Suzanne O’Connell Gallery (Brisbane)

Art and Artists blog is excited to included Jack Wilkie-Jans second guest post. Enjoy!

In the state's capital, Brisbane, there lies a fabulous boutique gallery nestled in New Farm. It is without doubt an institution which does its fair share adding to the style and sophistication the suburb has become envied for. The Suzanne O'Connell Gallery, run by art dealer, consultant and former jazz singer, Suzanne O'Connell, (located at 93 James Street in New Farm) specialises in presenting only the best Aboriginal artists and most beautiful contemporary artworks.

 
The current exhibition by Western Australian artist Bugai Whyoulter is one of the most beautiful on display at the moment. Recently featured in the current issue of Art Collector magazine Whyoulter is described by her admirers as quiet and reclusive. Her artworks however speak very loudly and vibrantly of her culture, history and land. She is the daughter-in-law of famed artist Nora Wompi and is herself showing once again that Aboriginal art is as contemporary as it is reflective and that the movement, if you will, remains one of the strongest and most diverse in the wider Australian art industry.
 
If you're heading to the sunshine state and going by Brisbane, be sure to wander down into New Farm and visit the Suzanne O'Connell Gallery- either before or after stopping to have a coffee or cocktail at one of the many divine establishments along James Street.
 
Bugai Whyoulter's exhibition will be on display until 6th June.
