Yarn Gallery is an online art gallery dedicated to exhibiting a wide range of original artworks by First Nations artists from across Australia. The artists featured in the gallery present works that capture the essence of the colours and shapes of their country, while also communicating thousands of years of knowledge, wisdom and stories. The online gallery presents an incredibly diverse range of artistic styles and colour palettes, unique to the specific communities and regions whence the artists are from. Yarn Gallery aims to provide Indigenous artists with a platform to gain recognition, whilst informing the wider Australian community about Indigenous art and culture through the experience of purchasing authentic First Nations artwork. 

The gallery offers a number of incredible original paintings by First Nations artists from Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Corporation, an art centre based in the remote communities of Yuendumu and Nyirripi, Central Australia. The art centre is a non-for-profit organisation that is 100% Aboriginal owned, and is one of the longest running centres in Australia, being established in 1985. Warlukurlangu Artists are world-renowned for their gloriously colourful acrylic paintings and limited edition prints. The artists’ works, which have been featured in hundreds of exhibitions in Australia and around the world, tell stories of the country around Yuendumu and Nyirripi, the Dreamtime and their ancestors.

We also offer a range of stretched canvas prints of original paintings by the immensely talented and proud Jarowair man, Charlie Chambers Jnr. These beautiful printed canvases are perfect for adding some gorgeous colour and life to your home. Each artwork tells a unique story about culture and country.
