REDOT FINE ART GALLERY is extremely honoured to announce the first ever collaboration with two of the central deserts more boutique community art centres, whom recently merged their resources to better service their respective communities.

Warakurna Arts and Kayili Arts had for many years now been know for their desirable and somewhat “quirky” contemporary art pieces and now the talented Jane Menzies works tirelessly to service both communities and all the artists either directly through the art centres at Warakurna or via weekly outreach programs in Kayili.

Tjukurrpa Purlkana, which loosely translated means big, strong, rich, is a fitting title for a show which represent so many different stories and places from Wanarn and Karilywara (Patjarr) to Wilpina (Lake Baker).

This small but very exciting body of work, comprising of 20 works in total, is not only important for the much-needed independence it offers the community members via the sale of their work, but also for allowing culture to remain strong and healthy, giving the elderly members of the Wanarn Aged Care facility an opportunity to remain active and integral to their respective communities.

The exhibition begins on Wednesday 28th February and runs until Wednesday 14th March 2018.
