Colin Holt - a survey


Add to calendar

Presenter:  CDU Art Gallery

Date: Nov 19, 2017 to Feb 17, 2018

Time: 10:00am to 4:00pm

Contact person:  Eileen Lim, Exhibitions and Collection Officer
T: 89466621
E: artgallery@cdu.edu.au

Location:  CDU Art Gallery, Building Orange 12, ground floor

Target audience:  This event is open to the public. No RSVP required.

Colin Holt: a survey will showcase paintings and posters from a career in the Northern Territory spanning almost 40 years in which time he has forged a large following of local devotees. Often labelled as an abstract expressionist, Holt creates layered compositions of paint that reference memory as a visual language. Holt’s art is not limited to abstraction. He is adept at screenprinting and large-format portraiture. Posters advertising music gigs and Top End tourism will feature alongside a series of cheeky portraits created in 2008 and entitled 30 years of Chief Ministers, works that convey Holt’s keen and cynical interest in local politics.

Many works of art in the exhibition are on loan from private collections in Darwin, Alice Springs and Yirrkala as well as a number of works in the CDU Art Collection. 

Colin Holt: a survey is curated by Kellie Joswig, Acting Curator CDU Art Collection and Art Gallery. The exhibition opens to the public on Thursday 19 October until 17 February 2018, and the CDU Art Gallery open Wednesday to Friday, 10am-4pm and Saturdays 10am-2pm.

Them Cheeky Dogs – Challenges and Opportunities in Remote Community Animal Management

Them Cheeky Dogs – Challenges and Opportunities in Remote Community Animal Management


Add to calendar

Presenter:  Dr Bonny Cumming, Project Officer and Veterinarian, Animal Management in Rural and Remote Indigenous Communities (AMRRIC)

Date: Feb 08, 2018

Time: 2:30pm to 3:30pm

Contact person:  Northern Institute
T: 08 8946 7468
E: thenortherninstitute@cdu.edu.au

Location:  Northern Institute, Yellow Building 1, Level 2, Room 48 (Savanna Room)

Target audience:  Open To the Public - All Welcome – Please Share

Abstract
Companion animals – historically dog, though increasingly cat populations – are often cited as a concern for remote community residents and visitors alike. Contributing factors include limited access to veterinary services and a wide-spread lack of local government staff with animal management skills or knowledge. This, combined with a relative dearth of peer-reviewed studies examining the physical and mental human health impacts of inadequately managed remote community companion animal populations, results in animal management often falling off the priority list. This presentation will outline some of the challenges that remote local governments and communities face when attempting to implement animal management activities, as well as the many opportunities that exist to improve the status quo.

About Dr Bonny Cumming
Bonny is a veterinarian and Project Officer for AMRRIC – a national not-for-profit organisation that coordinates veterinary and education programs in rural and remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Since graduating the University of Queensland Bachelor of Veterinary Science with First Class Honours, Bonny has held various clinical and non-clinical roles within the veterinary sector. Her current role with AMRRIC is diverse and includes project development and monitoring, volunteer coordination, managing the development of the AMRRIC App, and policy and protocol development. Bonny has a keen interest in One Health principles; combining community development, veterinary services and environmental conservation to improve animal, human and ecosystem health. 

RSVP by Wednesday, 07 February 2018 via Outlook or thenortherninstitute@cdu.edu.au
