12 minute segment
Executive Producer: Debra McCoy
The former Aboriginal mission town of Hermannsburg, 130 kilometres south-west of Alice Springs, has a long history of contemporary art practice—from the evocative watercolours of Albert Namatjira in the 1930s, to the quirky, colourful ceramics of the Aranda women’s pottery group today.
In August/September 2007, Brisbane’s Artisan Gallery hosted an exhibition of new works by the Hermannsburg Potters entitled Hermannsburg Life: 17 years of contemporary art exploration.
The segment explores the exhibition and the role of art in the life of the community.
