What happened to March?

What has just been

What did happen to March? Our DESERT WOMEN Aboriginal art exhibition opened on International Women’s Day and it was beautiful.  Thank you for those who visited the exhibition and thanks also to those of you who viewed it online and/or on social media. 

Our Guest Artist

We had a special guest at this show. Melbourne born and Alice Springs based, Marina Strocchi regaled a full house in our Saturday afternoon IN CONVERSATION session. She spoke of her foray into the central desert tri-state region going back to the 1980’s.  Marina has maintained a social practice as part of her established art career to become a valuable mentor to remote Indigenous artists.  Her exhibition catalogue can be viewed here.

 

     

    

Moving right along, we are now incredibly excited to be working towards our next exhibition 

What’s coming up

On Friday 24th May at Earlywork in South Fremantle, we open PARU – Spinifex a group show from the Spinifex Hill Studio Artists in Port Hedland!  We can promise something very different in the diversity of paintings in this exhibition, which are both exciting in their contemporary expression and painterly style.  The exhibition was confirmed with the art centre last year after Anna’s visit to the Pilbara. It was an honour and  a privilege to meet the wonderful creative talented artists whose paintings have been specially selected by her for this exhibition.  Below a very special sneak peak of a gorgeous landscape painting by Winnie Sampi which will feature in the show.  Image details: The Pool 30.5x51cm.
