Across three walls at MAMA is a new installation of nearly 150 fish made from sticks, leaves and re-purposed materials, forming the shape of a river - it could be either the Murray or Murrumbidgee.
And while this art created by local school students is impressive, what's even more amazing is their respect for Indigenous culture.
At the opening of Nginhagu: Belonging to this Place students shared some of the words they can speak in Wiradjuri - like five, sun and 'good morning teacher'.
MAMA Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander programs curatorial officer Andrea Briggs put up the works and said Lorraine Connelly-Northey, who the children worked with, was impressed with their efforts.
"Unfortunately Aunty Lorraine couldn't be here today, but has seen the exhibition and wanted to pass on how proud she is of all of you," she said.
"I'd like to congratulate the students from Glenroy Public, Culcairn Primary, Wewak, Albury Public, Hume and Table Top schools."
This is the fourth year MAMA has been involved in The Home Program, an arts and language education program run by the NSW Education Department with other partners including the Art Gallery of NSW.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander programs producer Amanda Peacock said the Art Gallery of NSW had facilitated a visual art-making lesson for the students with Reko Rennie, whereby the Kamilaroi artist answered the students' questions from a Sydney studio.
"The students had two virtual excursions and Reko presented this year, to 29 schools," she said.
"It's three full terms of work.
"We came together with the Department of Education and a regional gallery, in Wagga, initially, to develop a program and it has since spread out across NSW.
"MAMA has been fundamental and it's important to have local Aboriginal art profiled so that communities connect with local culture.
"It's very exciting to see the level of artistic practise the students are achieving and the way it comes together so beautifully."

Dr Pettina Love and Ruth Davys assisted with language lessons and Badger Bates, a Baakantji man, and curator and researcher Jonathon Jones were also involved.
MAMA curator Michael Moran thanked the many partners involved.
"I can't help but think just how valuable this is and what an amazing education that gives you," he told the students.
"It means you'll be better people than your parents, or me, and your kids will be better than you - you're making a better world."
