The Pilbara has a rich history and a vibrant artistic heart. The land and its Traditional Owners hold generations of stories, ceremony and culture.
Since 2006, the Colours of our Country exhibition has provided people in Perth with a small snapshot of these stories and customs – 1,500 kilometres away from the magnificent landscapes that influence so many of the works on show.
Colours of our Country is more than an exhibition. It creates economic development opportunities for the featured artists, supports the ongoing sustainability of art groups and artists, providing an outlet for cultural expression.
Over 12 years, the exhibition has sold 2,200 artworks generating more than $2.3 million for local artists, their art groups and their communities. Each year, our business has gifted artwork to the Art Gallery of Western Australia for the State Art Collection, which now contains 21 artworks by 10 Pilbara Aboriginal artists.
We encourage everyone to view the exquisite art on display, and support this highly anticipated annual event.
More details to be announced soon.
