With over 70 works from more than 100 artists from the APY Lands, you can explore the diversity of creative Aboriginal talent – capturing the essence of the rich environment; relating stories of the landscape and creation, ceremony and law, through painting, ceramics, photography, weaving and installations which extend through the gallery into the lush Hazelhurst gardens.

Some of the most extraordinary works are collaborations, between artists from all 7 arts centres in this vast region and every work in this exhibition is striking, dynamic and colourful.
