CURRENT EXHIBITION

KNOWING COUNTRY – The Power of Aboriginal Women in Art is an exhibition that is a tribute to Aboriginal women artists and the impact they have had on the art world.  It is especially fitting that the exhibition opens on International Women’s Day on 8th March 2018. The exhibition, to be held at Earlywork Gallery in South Fremantle, is a focus on the importance of Aboriginal women’s role in a contemporary visual art movement that began only decades ago but now has tentacles spreading nationally and across the globe.  Since the 1970’s when a young school teacher introduced acrylic paints into the western desert community of Papunya to the men who painted on what are now priceless boards the women have taken the lead to become award winners in the field, as well as proud supporters of their families and community.
