Supporting South Australia's Artists
At Art by Farquhar - we have many reproductions of Indigenous artwork. Each sale of a reproduction incurs a royalty fee paid directly to the artist. Supporting local Australian artists has never been easier, and when you buy with us, you’re supporting the wider community.
We have collaborated with a local Indigenous business – Ochre Dawn, based just up South Road from us at Glandore. We currently are home to some amazing reproductions by one of their artists, Elizabeth Close (Pitjantjatjara & Yankunytjatjara). Elizabeth is the artist of one of my favourite pieces in the gallery – “New Life”. She also has a beautiful digital vector print called “Always”, which pays homage to the Australian Indigenous Flag – “Always was, always will be”.
Ochre Dawn has also provided us with spectacular works by Yamatji/Noongar woman Sasha Hill, who has produced some beautiful dot paintings such as Songlines in Ochre & Songlines in Blue (see above for their PVC reproductions). We have recently received a Songlines in Blue ottoman from the team at Ochre Dawn, which can be used as an alternative way to add Indigenous art to your home.
Coral Hayes Pananka (recently introduced in a blogpost) is a new addition to our gallery. Coral uses strong earthy tones and fine dots in her work - read more about Coral here. Below, Coral is pictured with reproductions of "Yorta Yorta Dreaming", "My Seven Sisters" & "Rockholes"
We also are very privileged to have original paintings and reproductions by Kalkadoon artists Chern'ee Sutton & Brooke Sutton (Mount Isa, QLD). To read more about the sister's amazing work - click here.
We are always open to collaborating with Australian artists - if you are one yourself or know one don't be afraid to get in contact with us.
Until next time,
