Meet the artists from Merrepen Arts Centre who will talk about their work and the Mary Kunyi legacy.

Mary Kunyi (Kanngi) (1925–2005) was one of the first settlers of the Daly River mission who went on to become a widely collected artist. This exhibition will, for the first time ever, bring major works by Mary Kunyi together from collections across the country to highlight the significance of her contribution to Indigenous Art History as well as the now iconic artistic style of the Daly River region. The exhibition will also feature new works from artists who have been influenced by Kunyi. This exhibition is being produced in partnership with Mary’s family and Merrepen Arts; curated by Dr Cathy Laudenbach.
