“The Hermannsburg Potters are some of Australia’s most significant Indigenous artists working today and it is our great honour to host them at the NGV to celebrate their 25th year.”

Tony Elwood, Director, NGV

The Hermannsburg Potters bring the vibrant landscape and spirit of Central Australia to life with their hand-crafted terracotta and underglaze pots. Taking inspiration from Country, culture, history and day to day life activities the Potters depict family, birds, animals, bush tucker, mission days, stories of Country and current life in Ntaria (Hermannsburg), based at the remote foothills of the MacDonnell Ranges, 130 kilometres west of Alice Springs in the Northern Territory.
