Dirramu Ga Miyalku Djama - Elcho Island Arts
13 September – 7 October 2012
This exhibition showcased new prints by Yolŋu artists working at Elcho Island Arts in Galiwin’ku, east Arnhem Land. All prints were created during workshops run by TOP printmaker Sean Smith over the preceding six months. The exhibition included prints depicting men's ceremonial chest designs, detailed close-ups of traditional weaving, and illustrated stories of life on country. These remarkable contemporary artworks tell of Yolŋu tradition, and contemporary culture, and received fantastic feedback from gallery visitors.
Exhibiting artists: Judy Manany, Mavis Warrngilna Ganambarr, Ruth Lulwarriwuy, Andrew Markula, Charmaine Ashley, Sandy Pascoe, Tommy Minburra.
