A major exhibition of Aboriginal art, featuring more than 60 works by some of Australia's most celebrated Indigenous artists, is being held at Shalom College at UNSW this week (24-28 July).

The Shalom Gamarada Art Exhibition will help raise funds to support residential scholarships for Aboriginal medical students at Shalom College.

Two million dollars worth of art is on sale, including some never-before exhibited work by artists such as Emily Kngwarreye, Minnie Pwerle, George Tjungurrayi, Ronnie Tjampitjinpa and Regina Wilson.

The initiative is the result of collaboration between the Muru Marri Indigenous Health Unit, Nura Gili Indigenous Programs and The Shalom Institute.
