We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Gija/Kija artist Lena Nyadbi on recieving an Order of Australia in the Australia Day Honours List. Her majesstic evocations of Country and Culture resonate the world over and we are privileged to live and work in the company of her resplendent paintings every day at Wesfarmers.
We join with our arts partners National Gallery of Australia and Art Gallery of Western Australia in acknowledging this wonderful recognition of a truly great Australian artist. We also pay tribute to the wonderful Warmun Art Centre where Lena has worked since 1998 on the Gija Country that has nurtured among the greatest of Australian artists.
