The work of acclaimed Indigenous artist Tex Skuthrope is currently on display at Orange Regional Museum - where it will continue to hang until December 6.
The late artist was a Nhunggabarra man from Goodooga, Nhunggal country in north-western New South Wales, whose art will take pride of place for NAIDOC Week 2020.
The theme for this year is Always Was, Always Will Be; recognising that First Nations people have occupied and cared for this continent for over 65,000 years.
Accompanying the late-artist's work will that of his children- Annette O'Neill, David O'Neill and Brodie O'Neill -, in addition to art by Skuthrope's Orange-based grandson, Sandon Gibbs-O'Neill.
Since being taught by his grandfather, Mr Gibbs-O'Neill has become an accomplished Nhunggabarra artist in his own right.
Speaking about his own work, Mr Gibbs-O'Neill said he hoped to continue the teachings that his grandfather had passed onto him through art, while also challenging stereotypes.
"I am slowly going through the traditional Nhunggabarra stories that we have and paint them. I use this knowledge to create contemporary Aboriginal art which is inspired by the land, our culture, communities and society," he said.
"I love that art can resonate differently with each individual and that people are realising the importance of the knowledge held by the longest surviving culture on Earth."
The exhibition is open now at Orange Regional Museum.
