SISTER7 gallery on Larrakia Country opened on July 1st, 2018. The concept of the gallery was the first Women's gallery in Darwin showcasing initially 7 professional Aborginal female artists. Permission to operate on Larrakia Country was sought and granted some months earlier and the name SISTER7 granted and given by Larrakia Elder June Mills Gunluckiinimul to the new Women's only gallery in March 2018.
There are now 17 professional artists showcased and promoted at SISTER7. No intention to turn into a big gallery, every intention to just get better and better and remain ethical and respectful and contribute to Cultural maintenance in a lovely relaxed studio, inviting for female artists to come and paint and share their important stories, weave their baskets or make shell necklaces, all stress free and of course a cup of tea :)
Owner Lucinda Watson is an experienced Aboriginal art retail specialist with sound ethics in practice at SISTER7 with a focus on Women's stories as told through their art and documenting these sacred cultural stories correctly on certificates of authenticity.
The gallery is at shop 30/55 Mitchell Street, Mitchell centre Darwin. The gallery has an outdoors environment, natural colouring, sand and local rockery and plants creating an atmosphere of natural Larrakia Country environment.
SISTER7 open 7 days is coffee and kid friendly, so come in with your family, relax, learn and look and experience professional Aboriginal Women at sharing their important and ancient stories here in the happy little studio.
