Winhanganha Mayiny

Sat 4 December 2021, - Sun 5 June 2022,


Over 2020 and 2021 renowned Australian portrait photographer Gary Grealy worked with Orange Local Aboriginal Land Council and Orange Regional Gallery to create a series of portraits of members of the Orange Aboriginal community. Named Winhanganha (to think, know, remember) Mayiny (people), the project celebrates the importance of shared knowledge and leadership in community.

Winhanganha Mayiny highlights the diversity of skill and knowledge represented in the area across art, archaeology, language, sport and community work. Over multiple visits Grealy met and worked with each sitter to create a portrait that spoke to their identity and role. During each session the sitter discussed their work and the role it plays in building a strong community for future generations. Across all the portraits each person is united by their work for community and a shared belief in the Wiradjuri philosophy of Winhanganha.

An Orange Regional Gallery and Orange Local Aboriginal Land Council partnership exhibition made possible with generous support from Anna and Simon Ainsworth.
