The Art Gallery Aerogrammes is the third in a series of stamps and stationery based on works of art held in major Australian art galleries. The series showcases Australia’s rich artistic heritage through gallery collections. The artworks featured are by significant artists and provide us with insights into aspects of Australian culture.
This latest issue focuses on the Art Gallery of Western Australia, which was founded in 1895 and is located in the Perth Cultural Centre. The State Art Collection at the gallery comprises renowned collections of Western Australian, Australian and international art and design, as well as one of the finest collections of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art in Australia. The gallery is strongly committed to showcasing Indigenous art, life and culture through the visual arts.

An important cultural maintenance project was undertaken in mid-2006 to mark the development of Warakurna Community’s new arts enterprise, Warakurna Artists. The project involved a number of trips to sites of significance for Warakurna artists within the Ngaanyatjarra region. The family trips enhanced artists’ connection to country, provided an opportunity for intergenerational learning and enabled appropriate documentation of Tjukurrpa stories.
The cohesive series of paintings generated through the project have formed a valuable collection. The painting Ngaturn Tingari [Wati] Tjukurrpa tells a story about Ngaturn Tingari men travelling and meeting up with other Tingari mobs from Lapaku, Kintore and Docker River. All the Tingari men went together Kintore way to Lake MacKay for business.
