Four interpretations of ancestral dreamings from members of the same family will be the focus of Artitja Fine Arts exhibition KIN AND COUNTRY opening on 15th October in South Fremantle.
The four closely connected family members – Jean Nampitjimpa, Maureen Hudson Nampitjimpa, her daughter Gwenda Turner Nungarrayi and Gwenda’s mother-in-law Nancy Martin Napangardi from Mt Allen and Willowra country in the central desert, use a similar though individual technique of fine dotting to express their ancestral stories which include fire, water, emu, and bush onion themes.
PLEASE NOTE: A more comprehensive Media Release with up to date details and images of the artwork will be sent closer to the time. In the meantime enquiries are welcome.
KIN AND COUNTRY is free to the public, opening Friday 15th October 6.30pm and continuing 11am to 5pm daily to 31st October at 330 South Terrace, South Fremantle.
