What's on at the Cairns Gallery

Albert Namatjira is a name etched in my memory from childhood.


Albert Namatjira is a name etched in my memory from childhood. 

My mum loved his artwork, the distinctive, joyous colours of Central Australia, the hauntingly beautiful gum trees. In the 1940’s and 1950’s Albert Namatjira was part of the Hermannsburg School of artists, painting the distinctive, ethereal landscape around the MacDonnell Ranges outside Alice Springs. 

The Cairns Gallery has a collection of works from the Hermannsburg artists, including Albert Namatjira and some of his descendants.

The exhibition is on until 14 March 2021.
