The Hon. (Jim) James Miltiades SAMIOS, M.B.E., B.A., LL.B. (1933 – 2011)
AUSTRALIAN-PALESTINIAN ART EXHIBITION
The Hon. J. M. SAMIOS [10.12 p.m.]: I was present at an important Australian-Palestinian exhibition of paintings which was opened recently in Sydney at the Australian Museum. Community artist Marcelle Mansour, facilitator and director of the exhibition, received warm support from the arts and Arabic-speaking communities and from Federal and State politicians. Present at the exhibition were the Federal Minister for Immigration and Multicultural Affairs, Phillip Ruddock, head of the Palestinian delegation, Ali Kazak, Carnivale Chairman, Lex Marinos, Australian Museum Director, Des Griffin, and Australian Palestinian Club spokesman, Nabil Wahhab. The paintings depict traditional Palestinian proverbs in a contemporary Australian context. Many of those proverbs are well known to us in English.
Importantly, the exhibition reflected the fact that Australia is one nation and seeks to embrace all that is good in its cultures without prejudice to its cultural and economic enrichment. In our multicultural society, in which there are equal opportunities for artists of different backgrounds to
express their individuality and their culture in their creative art, modern Australia is witnessing the emergence of dynamic art forms that speak of its cosmopolitan heritage. Mr Kazak, head of the Palestinian delegation and Ambassador to Vanuatu, recently returned from a visit to New Zealand. He met in Sydney with a number of community heads and with the Leader of the Opposition, Mr Peter Collins, to discuss the peace process in the Middle East in addition to the briefing of the meeting between Mr Fischer and Yassar Arafat held in Lebanon.
It is pleasing to note that so many forces are at work in support of the peace process in the Middle East. Soon after that function I was privileged to attend, once again, the national day of Israel at which the President of the Jewish Board of Deputies, Peter Wertheim, and others spoke strongly of their optimism for the peace process in the Middle East. They believe that, in spite of aberrations and obvious provocation from some areas, the peace process would hold. That augurs well not only for the Middle East; it is important in underpinning the social cohesion of Australia’s multicultural society. There are 240 ethnic groups in Australia, a number of which come from the Middle East. The future of the peace process in the Middle East is relative to the harmony of our multicultural society.

Pictures of their suffering
By Alice Atkins
Marcelle Mansour says her paintings simply “tell our story – the story of Palestine and the children.”
One shows an enslaved Palestine and the dove symbol of peace. Other shows a child crying in pain, a refugee with no parents and no land. “The Palestinian children have seen their parents being fought and killed and bombed, “she said. “They experience the suffering of war, the destruction of civilisation, [have] lived in refugee camps … lived with despair, anguish, poverty and hunger. “No shelter or family, no schools, no education – just war, bullets and bombs. “
Marcella’s work will be part of an exhibition at the Australian Palestinian Club, Guildford, for National Refugee Week this week. It had been organised by the Council of Australian Palestinians with the support of Austcare which has organised events nationwide. The focus this year is the theme: “More than half the world’s refugees are children. “ These children, with almost no access to protection, assistance or health and education, are targets for abuse and exploitation,” Austcare says. Marcelle hopes her art will help people understand the children’s plight. The exhibition will run until Friday. Call the club on 9220 3718 for information.

Marcelle exhibits success
BREAKING into the art world is a bold step at the best of times but Mercelle Mansur’s boldness is matched by her work as she prepares to become a full-time artist during these tight times. Judging by recent responses to her work, this North Ryde artist is set for success. Palestine-born Marcelle, a mother of four, has painted most of her life. A former teacher and air hostess, Marcelle is an Administration Officer at Concord Hospital. Now, after a “busy life “of raising children, working and fitting in painting, Marcelle has decided to paint full-time. To launch her full time career, Marcelle is holding an exhibition of “affordable art “on August 31- September 5 at Centre Art Space, 409 Victoria Ave. Chatswood. supported by NAVA, 1992, The Front Page of Local Paper Northeren Distrct Times, Wed August 26, 1992.
