Hazelhurst Regional Gallery-2016

Bringing together more than 100 artists from across the Lands, the exhibition was an important opportunity for the region to speak as a whole and to share unique cultural and artistic traditions. The richly coloured, dynamic and powerful works articulated the central themes of Tjukurpa (Law), Ngura (Country), and Inma (ceremony), telling of Anangu creation stories, the landscape and its important sites.

Celebrating the diversity of creative output coming from this region, Outstation brings together a selected group of artists to present an exhibition of work spanning mixed media, painting and installation that includes finalists from this year’s National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award.

TARNANTHI, pronounced tar-nan-dee, is a Kaurna word from the traditional owners of the Adelaide Plains. It means to come forth or appear – like the sun and the first emergence of light, or a seed sprouting. For many cultures, first light signifies new beginnings. TARNANTHI, the inaugural Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art, casts new light on the art of Australia’s rich and diverse indigenous cultures
