ABORIGINART’S lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion is ti­tled Desert Con­trasts and fea­tures a di­verse se­lec­tion of some highly colourful paint­ings in­ter­spersed with some stark black and white of­fer­ings.

“Such is the syn­ergy of this Cen­tral Desert art that these amaz­ing con­trasts nat­u­rally com­pli­ment each other,” gallery direc­tor Bill Green said.

Artists on dis­play in­clude Glo­ria Pet­yarre, Tommy Wat­son, Judy Wat­son Na­pan­gardi, Eve­lyn Pul­tara, Kath­leen Pet­yarre, Gabriella Pos­sum Nun­gur­rayi among oth­ers as well as the late greats Min­nie Pw­erle, Dorothy Na­pan­gardi and Kud­ditji Kng­war­r­eye.

“This col­lec­tion brings to­gether some amaz­ing con­tem­po­rary paint­ings cre­ated by some of the most col­lectable in­dige­nous artists in Aus­tralia to­day; the con­trast be­tween the stun­ning colour and min­i­mal­is­tic mono­tone work is sim­ply breath­tak­ing - it has to be seen to be be­lieved,” Mr Green said.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will run for the whole month of July.

Aboriginart is open 10am - 4pm, six days (closed Tues­day) at 6 El­der Place Fre­man­tle (op­po­site the train sta­tion).
