‘Alaalpi Apinha’ (‘Many Hands’ in Adnyamathanha language)

In our culture we are very aware of how bringing many hands together helps to make life easier for everybody. Many hands have joined to make the works for this exhibition, some individual and some collaborative. Ranging in age from 16 to 75, each artist in the group has different levels of experience. They have come together to learn from each other’s talents and skills, using their heads and hearts and hands to create beautiful things.


Featured artists from the Malka Wiriwiri collective are Iteka Sanderson-Bromley and Temaana Sanderson-Bromley and other artists from the collective are David Osborne, Zac Scott and Janaya Callaghan. The exhibition will include artworks by Jessica Turner and Sonya Rankine and the Yuratu-Mathana elders group.

Media on display will include mixed media, ceramics, weaving, paintings on canvas, prints, textiles (painted and screen printed) and jewellery.

The gallery is open Wednesday – Sunday 9am-5pm. The Restaurant is open at these times also and has live music on the weekends. The artists will continue to contribute works throughout the exhibition: as items sell and are taken away, new ones will be added.
