This July, APY Gallery Sydney showcases a group exhibition from Art Centres of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands for this year’s NAIDOC theme: Let’s work together for a shared future.
The exhibition celebrates the vibrant and unique practices of APY artists through a diverse array of paintings and punu (wood craft). This body of work asserts the ways in which artists of the APY Lands use their art-making to express and share their Tjukurpa (Dreaming Stories) with a wide audience.
Artists featured include Nellie Coultard, Betty Chimney, Raylene Walatinna, Kunmanara (Jimmy) Pompey, Michelle Lewis, Sharon Adamson, Sandra Ken, Serena Ken, Maringka Tunkin, Anita Pumani, Linda Puna, Pauline Wangin, Jocelyn Venita Woods, Casseyanne Woods, Emma Singer, Julie Yatjitja, Rolley Mintuma, David Cooley, Fred Ward, and Ian Rictor.
