Indigenous Art Fair takes to The Rocks

Indigenous artists from around Australia will converge on The Rocks later this month for the National Indigenous Art Fair.

The two-day market on June 29 and 30 is presented by Sydney Swans friends the Blak Markets – Blak Markets artist Cheryl Davison is the artist behind Sydney’s black swan Indigenous guernsey.

CEO Peter Cooley said this is a unique opportunity to buy artwork directly from Aboriginal artists from 30 remote community owned art centres from the Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia.

“The National Indigenous Art Fair is a rare chance to meet artists from some of Australia’s most remote communities and browse a huge variety of Aboriginal art, right in the heart of Sydney,” Cooley said.   

“We are dedicated to ensuring Indigenous people are the architects of their own futures and we are thrilled to offer artists the chance to travel to Sydney to promote and sell their artworks and host workshops demonstrating their unique arts and cultural practices.”

In the spirit of the 2019 National NAIDOC theme “Voice. Treaty. Truth”, the event will also feature a vibrant program of live music, weaving circles and Aboriginal dance performances, plus more than 30 stallholders from around New South Wales selling art, jewellery, gifts, homewares, and Indigenous food and beverages.  

Entry is by gold coin donation to support First Hand Solutions’ Aboriginal youth programs.
