‘Out of Country’ exhibit features Queensland art

‘Out of Country’ For Australia’s indigenous people, art is an expression of the relationship to the land, the “country.”

But the landscape is not all desert outback. “Out of Country,” an exhibit on display at the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection” until Aug. 14, features artwork from Queensland, a tropical northeastern state, and the Torres Strait Islands. The exhibit also offers a range of artists’ perspectives on contemporary urban life and the connections to culture and country. Almost 30 artists contributed paintings and sculpture to the exhibition, which was organized by the Queensland Indigenous Arts marketing and Export Agency.

The Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., and is located at 400 Worrell Drive, Peter Jefferson Place.
