ART SHOW

The Cathy Freeman Foundation is celebrating its 10 Year Anniversary in 2017. To commemorate the journey of the Foundation, a collection of painted artworks from the Foundation’s community partner in the Tiwi Islands and photographic pieces taken by Professor Wayne Quilliam will be used to raise funds.
All funds raised from the sale of art will go towards the Cathy Freeman Foundation’s
life-changing education programs.

Professor Wayne Quilliam is one of Australia’s pre-eminent Indigenous photographic artists, curators and cultural advisers working on the international scene. His awards for his career include the NAIDOC Indigenous Artist of the Year, AIMSC Business of the Year, Human Rights Media Award and the Walkley Award for photojournalism including being nominated as a Master of Photography by National Geographic.


Based in Melbourne, Wayne Quilliam has exhibited in museums and galleries both nationally and internationally. Quilliam is an expert in contemporary visualisation of Indigenous Australia and has worked with the Cathy Freeman Foundation for the last three years, helping to profile the Foundation’s work through his images. His unique photographic pieces of art depict the raw nature of community, landscapes and nature at its most striking moments in time.
