NYUYUNTJAKU - KEEPING THE FIRE ALIVE
New Paintings & Ceramics by the Artists of Ernabella Arts
20 December 2017 - 5 February 2018
@ New Gallery Space 659 Sun Valley Road Ketchum Idaho
To celebrate the opening of our brand new gallery space in downtown Ketchum this December, Harvey Art Projects proudly announces Nyuyntjaku - Keeping the Fire Alive an exhibit showcasing senior and emerging artists from Ernabella Arts. In 2018 Ernabella Arts celebrates its 70th anniversary. As Australia’s oldest Indigenous art center this is a history that the artists are incredibly proud of and committed to continuing. Their work continues to share their culture and their Tjukurpa as it has done for generations. The young and emerging artists in this exhibition, namely Rachael Mipantjiti Lionel, Langaliki Lewis, Derek Jungarrayi Thompson and Elizabeth Dunn have taken up the responsibility of stoking the incredibly long-burning fire that is Ernabella Arts. They have demonstrated that despite the art centre’s age it still has young blood and plenty of stories to yet to tell. Nyuyntjaku - Keeping the Fire Alive also features works by Pepai Jangala Carroll, Alison Milyika Carroll, Carlene Thompson, Rupert Jack and Niningka Lewis.
This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
