Thancoupie Tribute - A Legacy of Cultural Power

Fri 05 Jul - Sun 21 Jul

LAUNCH: 5pm Friday 12 July

Thancoupie Gloria Fletcher AO (1937-2011) was an exceptional pioneering artist, linguist, teacher and cultural leader from Napranum in Far North Queensland.

Thancoupie was the first Aboriginal woman to become a potter, to have a solo exhibition overseas, to graduate from art college, to receive two honorary doctorates and to be an Australian Cultural commissioner overseas.

Thancoupie enjoyed sharing her passion with everyone, especially running art camps for children on her traditional land of Bouchat north of Weipa. Thancoupie had many exhibitions and her ceramics were collected by major art galleries around Australia and internationally. Thancoupie continues to be a source of inspiration for many artists.

In honouring CIAF’s original Patron, this tribute exhibition will celebrate her contribution to the arts and highlight the profound legacy she left behind.

Launch: 5pm, Friday 12 July

Open: 9am – 4.30pm weekdays, 10am – 4pm weekends
