About Our Auction

Children's Ground is thrilled to celebrate and profile three Arrernte artists in our first online art exhibition 'Grandmothers Lore’.

Money raised with go directly to support the transmission of knowledge from Elders to adults, young people and children.

'Grandmothers Lore explores the relationship between two generations, it is a body of work documenting the transmission of cultural knowledge from grandmother to granddaughter.

Using their art to support their communities, Amunda Gorey, Grace Gorey and Myra Gorey are three sisters from the Arrernte nation grew up in the remote community of Santa Teresa.

Amunda is a celebrated artist and together with her sisters they bring their talent to celebrate their culture, their grandmothers and how the knowledge of grandmothers carries through them to their children and future generations. These art works arise from their connection to country, family and lore.

NAIDOC week allows us to focus us on the beauty, depth and knowledge in our art and its important role in transmission of knowledge, lore and law. This art is not only spectacular, it is part of a continued practice that holds our knowledge and stories and keeps our culture alive through generations.

Works will be available to purchase from Sunday 8th November with 50% of sales being generously donated to Children’s Ground.
