Colours of Country:

Hermannsburg Watercolour Artists and Hermannsburg Potters with Tjanpi Desert Weavers

27 March – 12 April

Metropolis Gallery is proud to present Colours of Country: paintings by the current generation Hermannsburg Watercolour Artists together with Hermannsburg Potters’ hand-built ceramics, meticulously decorated with landscape, flora and fauna motifs and Tjanpi Desert Weavers’ (from the NPY Lands) quirky animal sculptures that beautifully complement the Hermannsburg works.

These artworks are inspired by landscapes that the artists know intimately, from remote locations to iconic views of the Western MacDonnell Ranges and the flora and fauna found there, locating the artists in a continuity of ancestral connections to country.

Colours of Country opens on Thursday 27 March and runs until Saturday 12 April. The public is invited to visit Metropolis Gallery from 12.30 – 1.30 pm on Friday 28 March for the rare opportunity to experience exhibiting artists Gloria Pannka and Lenie Namatjira painting evocative images of the Central Desert.
