ABO­RIG­I­NART In­dige­nous Fine Art Gallery’s lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion ‘Re­flec­tions of Utopia’ fea­tures some of the more re­cent con­tem­po­rary of­fer­ings from this fa­mous re­gion in the Cen­tral Desert.

This is the area where the ge­nius of the late greats Emily Kame Kng­war­r­eye and Minie Pw­erle first came to light and the tra­di­tion con­tin­ues.

Th­ese stun­ning paint­ings showcase a di­verse se­lec­tion of the finest works from the more es­tab­lished liv­ing artists in­clud­ing Kath­leen Pet­yarre, Mar­garet Sco­bie, Bar­bara Weir, Glo­ria Pet­yarre, Polly Ngale, Betty Mbit­jana and Josie Pet­rick Ke­marre, to the up and com­ing younger tal­ents like Kath­leen Pet­yarre’s grand­daugh­ter Abie Loy Ke­marre and Min­nie Pw­erle’s grand­daugh­ter Teresa Purla.

“This ex­hi­bi­tion rep­re­sents an ex­cit­ingly dif­fer­ent range of paint­ing styles, colours and tech­niques, from the tra­di­tional dot work to the more con­tem­po­rary lib­eral splashes of colour,” Abo­rig­i­nart gallery di­rec­tor Bill Green said.

“This re­fresh­ing di­ver­sity en­sures that there is some­thing here for ev­ery­one, what­ever your aes­thetic taste, wall size and bud­get.”

Abo­rig­i­nart is open 10am4 pm six days (closed Tues­day) at 6 Elder Place, Fre­man­tle (op­po­site the train sta­tion).
