Colours of our Country shares the stories and customs of the Pilbara, showcasing a piece of the Pilbara through a vibrant collection of artworks proudly exhibited by Rio Tinto.

In 2021, Rio Tinto celebrated the 16th year of Colours of our Country showcasing 186 art works by 36 Pilbara artists over two weeks at Perth’s Central Park building and online.

Thank you to everyone who supported the 2021 exhibition.

About Colours of our Country

The annual Colours of our Country Aboriginal Art Exhibition has evolved from a pop-up exhibition commemorating 40 years of Rio Tinto iron ore operations in Western Australia, into a high-profile annual event, providing art-lovers the opportunity to connect with Pilbara Aboriginal artists and hear the stories that inspire their work.

All proceeds from the exhibition are provided to the participating art centres and independent artists including Yinjaa-Barni Art CentreWangaba Roebourne Art Group and Cheeditha Art Group.

Keep Up-to-date
