In These Hands (Mara Nyanganka) Celebrating 70 years of Ernabella Arts

November 30, 2018 @ 11:00 am - February 11, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

The fruits of a collaboration that took place 46 years ago are the subject of this very special exhibition about Australia’s two oldest centres for craft and design – Sturt Gallery & Studios (1941) and Ernabella Arts (1948). Forty-six years ago, five young artists from Ernabella went to Sturt as part of a residency to learn new weaving techniques. To celebrate Ernabella’s 70th birthday, In These Hands: Mara nyangangka tells the story of that residency, its impact on subsequent generations and offers a showcase of the contemporary work in painting, ceramics and tjanpi (native grass) weaving and punu (timber) work. In these hands (Mara nyangangka) Celebrating 70 years of Ernabella Arts is a Sturt Gallery touring exhibition.
