This exhibition of works by Western Aranda watercolourists associated with Ntaria (Hermannsburg) pays tribute to the enduring legacy of famed artist Albert Namatjira. In a dialogue across generations, the exhibition features recent and decades-old paintings drawn primarily from practising artists of Iltja Ntjarra Many Hands Art Centre in Alice Springs and the collections of Flinders University Museum of Art, Art Gallery of South Australia and South Australian Museum.

Curated by Marisa Maher, Assistant Manager, Iltja Ntjarra Many Hands Art Centre with Nic Brown, Collections Curator and Madeline Reece, Exhibitions and Programs Assistant, Flinders University Museum of Art.

Presented in partnership with the Art Gallery of South Australia and Iltja Ntjarra Many Hands Art Centre for Tarnanthi: Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art, 2019.

This event will also celebrate the opening of our new gallery at Finders University, Bedford Park.
