FORM, in partnership with Ieramagadu (Roebourne) based art centres – Cheeditha Art Group, Juluwarlu Art Group and Yinjaa-Barni Art, presents Ngardamarri.
Ngardamarri showcases the rich and diverse artistic practice of artists from the Pilbara town of Ieramagadu.
There is an unmistakable creative energy emanating from the small town of Ieramagadu. Meaning side-by-side in Yindjibarndi language, Ngardamarri brings together senior and emerging artists from Cheeditha Art Group, Juluwarlu Art Group and Yinjaa-Barni Art, plus independent artist Chenise Cameron. The exhibition shines a light on the stories, talent and artistic diversity in this dynamic community.
Ngardamarri features over 45 new works by Cheeditha Art Group’s Kaye Warrie, Sharon Warrie and Wendy Warrie; Juluwarlu Art Group’s Banyji Pansy Cheedy, Jane Cheedy, Tootsie Daniel, Alice Guiness, Wendy Hubert and Denise Kelly; Yinjaa-Barni Art’s Marlene Harold, Maudie Jerrold, Aileen Sandy, Allery Sandy, Melissa Sandy and Justina Willis; and independent artist Chenise Cameron.
From vibrant and distinctly patterned paintings, to bold large-scale canvases, works on paper, photography and carved yarranga marni boards and scratchboards, Ngardamarri is a joyful celebration of contemporary artmaking, rooted in an intrinsic connection to Country, culture and history.
Ngardamarri opens Thursday 22 July, and is on display at The Goods Shed 23 July to 26 September, 2021.
