Packing time! Our new watercolours are about to journey to Darwin ready to be exhibited at the Darwin Art Fair 2015.
Support the production of the Namatjira Documentary and get an original artwork!
Long-time Ngurratjuta Many Hands collaborators Big hART have been working with the Namatjira family and artist communities for the past 6 years. Together they wrote a theatre show which has toured Australia twice. Alongside each theatre performance was a partnering exhibition of contemporary watercolours. The widespread coverage of the theatre show was fantastic exposure for the artists and art centre.
Throughout Big hARTâ€™s work with the artists, a documentary crew has been capturing pivotal moments of the project, working with the Namatjira family and Hermannsburg communities. We are proud to have been a supporting partner throughout the Namatjira Project and we are asking for our friends and followers to consider making a pledge to a crowdfunding campaign.The funds will enable the completion of the documentary which will raise the profile of the art centre and work towards sustainability for the Hermannsburg art movement into the future. As part of the campaign you can get a beautiful original artwork byLenie Namatjira,Gloria Pannka,Ivy Pareroultja,Mervyn RubuntjaorPeter Tjutjatja Tayloras a reward. A great way to lend your support in two ways at once!
