The Tarnanthi Art Fair brings together city-based, regional, emerging and established artists from across the nation exclusively to Adelaide and presents the work of over 40 art centres from across Australia. It's the chance for art lovers and collectors to meet and greet and buy direct from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists.

Running from 26 to 28 October 2018 at Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute, 253 Grenfell St Adelaide, gallery opening hours over the weekend of the art fair will be 5-8pm on Fri 26 Oct, 10am-4pm on Sat 27 and Sun 28 Oct.


This year's Art Fair welcomes ten new art centres, including Bábbarra Designs, which represents the community of TARNANTHI feature artist John Mawurndjul. This event supports works of art/art production, which is a key source of income for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Buy something for your home, family or friends, and be immersed in the best of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art from around Australia.
