Tour with the Curator 

Araluen Arts Centre – Albert Namatjira Gallery

Join the curator for a tour of Lineage & Legacy – an exhibition drawn from the Araluen Collection and various local collections. It celebrates three distinct creative movements; Albert Namatjira and the Hermannsburg School; the Western Desert art movement and the Hermannsburg Potters – each playing a key role in shaping the evolution of contemporary Aboriginal art across 85 years. The exhibition invites viewers to engage with the rich culture, aesthetic ability and artistic innovation of these multigenerational First Nations’ artists, as revealed through distinct visual languages that confidently assert knowledge and connection to Country, with lineage stretching back through millennia.

Tours are free, but places are limited. Reserve your seats below.
