Tjarlirli Art at Gallery Gondwana
Work from one of the newest Aboriginal Art Centres in the region, Tjarlirli Art from Tjukurla in Western Australia, will be featured in Gallery Gondwana’s Autumn Exhibition.
Named after one of three sacred rock holes near Tjukurla that has special significance to the women of the region, Tjarlirli Art was formed in June 2006 out of a desire to draw people back to their birthplace from the communities of Docker River (to the south) and Kiwirrkura (to the north). The paintings will be available for viewing on the web from 17 April.

Opening: Saturday 14 April 3pm
14 April – 20 May at Gallery Gondwana, Todd Mall, Alice Springs
Tales from the Bush
We start our year with this charming exhibition of work by acclaimed artists of this genre includes Bessie Liddle, Peggy Jones, Billy Benn and other great work from the communities of Titjikala, Julalikari, Bindi, Tjampi, Hermannsburg and Ikuntji. The work represents a serene world of simplicity, scenes of everyday life, country and memories depicted with a love of colours and shapes.
