In These HANDS: Mara nyangangka

Sturt Gallery and Ernabella Arts present In These HANDS: Mara nyangangka, an exhibition of new paintings, ceramics, tjanpi weavings and punu from the artists of Ernabella, celebrating 70 years of Ernabella Arts.

Forty-six years ago, five young artists from Ernabella Arts went to Sturt Gallery & Studios as part of a residency to learn new weaving techniques. In These HANDS: Mara nyangangka tells the story of that residency, its impact on subsequent generations and offers a showcase of the contemporary work of senior artists including Pepai Jangala Carroll, Rupert Jack, Tjunkaya Tapaya and Alison Milyika Carroll alongside emerging Indigenous artists.
