Had a look at this exhibition of Aboriginal artists from the Western Riverina that's at the Griffith Regional Art Gallery.

The painting 'Looking through the portals' by Veronica Collins made me pause mid-step, as it reminded me of my fevered dream recently about portals cut into the massive trunks of river red gums.

Another highlight is the work of Rodney Simpson, whose large-scale woodcarvings are wonderful. The work 'Echidna' shown here is accompanied with text that explains:
