In early March, Managing Director Sarah Slattery visited Alice Springs accompanied by Sydney based Indigenous artist Thea Anamara Perkins and art curator Barbara Flynn, who was recently engaged by Slattery to select art for Slattery’s Sydney office art collection.
Part of the collection will feature works by the Tangentyere Artists; Alice Springs based Aboriginal owned Art Centre providing arts training and workshops, as well as marketing and sales support for the artists. It will also feature a series of portraits by Perkins of five senior figurative painters:
- Betty Conway
- Sally M. Mulda
- Nyinta Donald
- Grace Robinya
- Doris Thomas
An official collection opening night will be held at the Slattery Martin Place office in May with a number of artists in attendance.
