About the Artist
Marlene Plunkett is a talented Aboriginal Artist from Regional Australia.
Born in 1957, Marlene now lives in the community of the Wiradjuri Nation in the Albury/Wodonga area. Marlene is one of four children. Her grandmother was from the tribal lands of Bunganditj, also known as Boandik Nation, Mount Gambier area, South Australia. Marlene has six children of her own, and eleven grandchildren.
Marlene Plunkett's Connection Through Community tells the story of the connection from community to community. In traditional times, communities were connected through trading goods to one and other, also through ceremonies and through the inter marriages from tribe to tribe.
This made the tribes strong and forged a bond between the groups.
