[Extract] In 1999, as the guest curator at Perc Tucker Regional Gallery in Townsville, Maria Wronska Friend organized an exhibition Roses and Red Earth which examined the continuity and significance of folk art traditions in the life of Polish migrants in Australia. The exhibition comprises two major sections: the first provides a comprehensive selection of folk art created in Poland, while the second examines the presence of folk inspirations in the works of three generations of Polish migrants who, following World War II, migrated to Australia.
