Ernabella, Australia, 2014

Main Gallery   25 June - 11 July 2015


Established in 1948, Ernabella Arts is Australia’s oldest Indigenous art centre. Ernabella Arts is located in Pukatja Community at the eastern end of the Musgrave Ranges in far north-west South Australia.

Following on from the enormous success of the 2014 Ernabella exhibition in Sydney, Sabbia Gallery is thrilled to present this very important exhibition showing some of Ernabella’s finest artists in Yangupala Tjuta Waakarinyi : Many Young People Working. This unique exhibition will present new work in ceramics from a select group of award winning and emerging Ernabella artists. These exciting new works from the ceramics studio have been created on Country in Ernabella Australia. The exhibition will also include ceramics created during their residency in Jingdezhen, China in early 2015. The exhibition runs from 4 to 12 July 2015 in conjunction with the 14th Australian Ceramics Triennale in Canberra.

The works on exhibition will be important large scaled pots created by Derek Thompson and Tjimpuna Williams during a residency in Jingdezhen China in early 2015, as well as small and medium scaled works by ten Ernabella artists including Pepai Carroll and Alison Milyika Carroll, that have been created on Country in Ernabella.
