Australia Post has released a new Postage Stamp series titled “Indigenous Culture”. The stamps reproduce indigenous art from five living indigenous artists from works held in our public collections.
Four of the paintings are by women artists.
The artists and communities where they lived are:
Judy Napangardi Watson – Yuendumu NT
Tjuruparu Watson – Irrunytju (Wingellina) WA
Jan Billycan – Bidyadanga WA
Elaine Russell – Lake Cargelligo NSW
Nura Rupert – Ernabella SA
