Beautiful Indigenous artwork purchased for our Reconciliation Action Plan

We have recently published our AGS Reconciliation Action Plan including a stunning painting by Indigenous artist Emma Nungarrayi on the cover. Emma lived at Papunya for many years and is recognised as a member of the influential Papunya Artists Movement of the 1970s and 1980s. Emma is from Central Mt Wedge and holds the sacred and secret law from that country she calls Karrinyarra.

AGS is proud to have purchased this painting from Aboriginal-owned and directed Tangentyere Artists which is a not-for-profit organisation, returning 100% of proceeds to the artists it represents. Strongly committed to improving social justice and maintaining cultural heritage, the centre operates on foundation principles based on equity, ethics and the protection of artists’ rights.

Emma’s painting is now hanging in AGS Canberra.
