Des Art in the park was held a couple of nights ago in the Alice Springs Desert Park. Like always it seems to have been a great success.

Quoted from the report:

Stalls selling everything from bright canvases to jewellery, prints, and painted artefacts were at the event, which brings together Aboriginal owned and controlled art centres for a two day conference and art market.

Eighteen art centres from as far away as Tjukurla in Western Australia and Ernabella in South Australia travelled to Alice Springs. Vicki Bassito, coordinator of the Tjukurla Art centre, 800 kilometres west of Alice Springs said the event is a great opportunity for the artists and the public.
