Wiradjuri artist Rechelle Turner and Ngunnawal Wiradjuri artist Megan Daley with Sisters Interwoven. Exploring their First Nations heritage in printmaking and textiles, Turner and Daley say their work is a vehicle for self-expression enabling exploration of culture and connection to Country.

The works in this exhibition are the result of an artsACT funded residency at Megalo Print Studio. The artists are aiming to further develop the works to create original wearables in the future.

Megan Daley is an emerging artist and has undertaken a number of commissions including for the YMCA Canberra and Woden Community Services. Her work was included in Heart Strong, a survey of First Nations women painters based in Ngunnawal Country at Belco Arts in 2021. She is a passionate advocate for her culture and people through her community work and uses her art practise as a way to celebrate everything she loves about her culture.

Rechelle Turner recently delivered Yuma Yarn weaving and music events for Tuggeranong Arts and has previously shown at the Centre in 2022, in a solo exhibition, Ngadhu Bandali Ngurambang Gu. Collaged works included paper featuring Wiradjuri language and designs were snapped up by audiences. Rechelle was inspired by learning and reclaiming her cultural language and underestimated the sense of power, and connection, that reconnecting with Wiradyuri culture and language gave her. Through her work, she hopes to promote healing in the community for those have been dispossessed of their cultural and linguistic heritage.
