EDIT: This newsletter post wrongly stated that Ruth Ellis, a board member of the Namatjira Legacy Trust commissioned an art work from Iltja Ntjarra Artists, when in fact this art work was commissioned by the Namatjira Legacy Trust.
Ruth Ellis, a board member of the Namatjira Legacy trust and a good friend of Iltja Ntjarra Art Centre has graciously commissioned an art work from Iltja Ntjarra Artists, descendants of Albert Namatjira, to celebrate the victory of the copyright of Albert Namatjira being returned to his family along with the legacy of Kumuntjai L. Namatjira who played an integral part In the success of the copyright’s return.
The commission has now commenced and we are excitedly looking forward to the finished piece. It will be exhibited at the Araluen Art Centre, Alice Springs, with the prospect of it being loaned to other high-profile galleries for exhibition.
