eofys – Saretta Art & Design


As many of you know, last year I was hoping to launch Ninkinpa Gallery, my home studio but due to overwhelming demand we had to move the exhibition to Yamuloong Cultural Centre. Well now I am launching Ninkinpa Gallery and Studio, holding an End of Financial Year Sale and introducing my brother, Damian Smith to the Newcastle Art World.

Damian draws from his experience of being an internationally acclaimed principal ballet dancer performing with some of the world’s best dance companies such as, the San Francisco Ballet, New York City Ballet, Royal Ballet London and Australian Ballet among others.
Branching out from his background in classical ballet where he contemplated the theoretical spaces where dance exists, Damian set out to create work that challenges dance by questioning the dynamic interplay between movement, the performer, and the geographical and temporal performative spaces it exists in.

You're invited to see where all the magic happens... the indoor and outdoor studio spaces, the Home Gallery and artworks by Damian Smith and Saretta Fielding. "It has been a great privilege to host many visitors since opening the studio space in February and I look forward to exhibiting with my brother, Damian for the first time".

Saretta & Damian, 1988On Friday 10 June 2016 we will be launching Ninkinpa Gallery from 6pm. Join Damian and I as we sample local Hunter Valley wines, cheese, bush-tucker and music.

On Saturday 11 June, the gallery will be open from 10am - 2pm. There are two artist talks at 11am and 1pm both with Damian and myself.
