If you haven’t yet managed to pay a visit to FCA&C’s exhibition of Papua New Guinean contemporary art in the University of St Andrews Gateway Galleries, you’ve just one week left to do it!
Judging by the number of comments received by FCA&C since the show opened some weeks ago, PNG and its people seem to hold a special place in many people’s hearts. The colourful and detailed artworks on show give a good taste of the many identities of the island, and also some of the mythical stories which are still so important to the islanders today. With a focus on the paintings, prints and beaten metal wall panels of the late Mathias Kauage, there are also examples of painting by Martin Morububuna; textiles by Cathy Kata; recycled metal sculpture by Tom Deko; and carved wooden sculpture from the Sepik River by Kaua Gita.
The exhibition runs at the Gateway Galleries (North Haugh, University of St Andrews) until Sat 14 August. There is free parking beside the Gateway building and a cafe Mon-Fri (closed on Sat). Admission is free. Full information about the exhibition can be found on the Programme page of FCA&C’s website.
