“The art makes us think of our culture in another way and what we want people to know. It’s good for everyone to have a place like this it helps us be part of both worlds” – Dulcie Sharpe
Yarrenyty Arltere Artists is a thriving creative hub that has nurtured the emergence of an entirely new form of art-making. The artists create contemporary soft sculptures and experiment with various other mediums as they explore and express their experience, place and culture. Yarrenyty Arltere Artists was born out of the Yarrenyty Arltere Learning Centre, which in 2020 marked 20 years of service. The Centre has had an immeasurable impact, strengthening the community, building capacity of artists and elevating culture.
This exhibition reflects on the strength and longevity of Yarrenyty Arltere Artists and celebrates its innovation, creativity and diversity. Exciting new works will be presented alongside a number of early works drawn from the Araluen Collection that capture the context of this movement. A curated selection of animations will bring to life the sculptural characters the artists are renowned for, creating an experience that encapsulates the energy of the artists and their art centre.
