In These Hands: Mara nyangangka

Paintings, ceramics and tjanpi weavings from the artists of Ernabella

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.

46 years ago, 5 young artists from Ernabella Arts went to Sturt Gallery and Studios 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 not only tells the historical story of the link between these 2 famous centres, it celebrates the long tradition of craft and design in Australia while at the same time being testament to the positive collaboration and understanding between an Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultural institution sharing that same passion for ‘making’.
