Frank Wright, Gamilaroi

“Painting and drawing is something I have always enjoyed. I have extensive knowledge of the local animals and traditional stories from Gamilaroi country to inspire my painting. Growing up on the Namoi Reserve on the banks of the Namoi River in Walgett, I have listened to stories from my grandparents and parents around the campfire, stories I have begun to incorporate into my painting. The Emu features prominently in my work, along with many of the other animals found in the area around Walgett, and the river systems of the Namoi and Barwon. I work closely with other artists in schools and with young people, I to see Walgett on the map as the home of quality Indigenous art in Western NSW.”
