Stories from the Mountains is an exhibition of work by Aboriginal artists connected to the Blue Mountains region and the stories they tell though their artwork. The exhibition includes painting, photography, video and installation. There are also several cultural objects displayed. Two of these, the Possum Skin Cloak and the Canoe, were made in workshops attended by local Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in order to facilitate cultural exchange. The other is the Scarred Tree that was removed from Belleview Park in Lawson in 2003.
A Blue Mountains Cultural Centre exhibition.
