N\H exhibits Hermannsburg artists in Chifley's magnificent lobby

25 January 2018

As Chifley's art partner, we have just installed five magnificent works in Chifley's lobby by contemporary Indigenous artists of the Hermannsburg region.  They're members of Iltja Ntjarra, Many Hands Art Centre which has a special focus on supporting the ‘Hermannsburg School’ style watercolour artists, who continue to paint in the tradition of their grandfather and relative, Albert Namatjira—arguably one of Australia’s most famous artists of the 20th century. By continuing his legacy, these artists sustain an important piece of living history.

The works were exhibited Nanda\Hobbs in October. The scale of these works - each measure 182cm x 244cm - has never been attempted before. Chifley's grand and elegant lobby is a magnificent setting for the museum quality masterpieces. They will be on public display at Chifley in Sydney's CBD until early May. Make sure you see them...
