After a successful exhibition at Winya’s city showroom in Sydney, the APY Collection, including some new works, moved to Winya’s Canberra showroom – available for you to view and consider investing in. The exhibition is open until 12 March 2019.
The APY Lands is located in remote Central Australia in the far north of South Australia. The region consists of the Pitjantjatjara, Yankunytjatjara and Ngaanyatjarra Aṉangu peoples.
In Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) communities, art centres are a key source of non-government income and provide real jobs for Aṉangu people. These art centres are home to some of the best known and most collectable Indigenous artists in the country, as well as a host of young and emerging artists.
We have worked with the APY Art Centre Collective to create a diverse, beautiful and powerful collection. The artists who have artworks in this collection live in different communities across the APY lands, and work at their local community owned and controlled Art Centres:
Ernabella Arts based at Ernabella, also known as Pukatja. Ernabella Arts is Australia’s oldest, continuously running Indigenous Art Centre.
Tjungu Palya based in Nyapari community.
Kaltjiti Arts based in Fregon/Kaltjiti community.
Iwantja Arts based in Iwantja/Indulkana community.
Mimili Arts based in Mimili community.
Tjala Arts based in Amata community.
Enjoy this video made by Iwantja Arts last year, which had its premier screening at the 2018 DesertMob Symposium in Alice Springs. Its called “Never Stop Riding” and is an Iwantja style western! https://ictv.com.au/video/item/5896
You can support Aṉangu people as professional artists by investing in their art for your workplace, your organisation and your home.
