Maruku Arts in Desert Mob 2020

Today Desert Mob 2020 opened and Maruku artist Kathryn Queama and Maruku artist and director Selina Kulitja visited the exhibition.

Maruku Arts presents seven works: Cynthia Burke’s unique Minyma Kapitjara (woman with water) – a moving abstract female sculpture, Dallas Smythe’s beautiful walka boards The Rirra, a smaller version of the work in the Telstra show that tells the story of her country, a powerful Kali Installation from our Finke artists Patrick Allen, Nevio Tjami and Lincoln Douglas, Kathryn Queama’s intriguing Tali (Sand dune) painting where she transfers her Punu design on canvas, senior artist Eunice Porters large Piti (bowl), the distinctive Timpilypa (music sticks) from Billy and Lulu Cooley and last but not the strong Tjara (shield) – sound installation from Brett Jennings.

A big thank you to the Araluen team for the great and challenging installation.

Be quick – some of these remarkable artworks are still available. The exhibition finishes on the 25 October 2020.
