We are delighted to bring to you a wonderful coming together of talent, experience and insight into the artist known simply as, Emily.
First, with the current exhibition of Sol LeWitt at the Art Gallery of NSW, which includes artworks by Emily Kame Kngwarreye and Gloria Petyarre, we thought it the perfect time to take you back to the 90's with Frannie Hopkirk as she creates the scene of Emily and other artists at work, with a skill and gentleness which almost allows us to be there. 
Next, Jeremy Eccles' review of the Sol LeWitt exhibition brings his unique eye and experience of indigenous art to this major world Conceptual art figure. 
And, thanks to the award-winning fine art photographer, Greg Weight, we are also able to show you some images of Emily Kame Kngwarreye that we just love - and include the story behind the images, in Greg's own words.
We hope you enjoy it.
