The opening of Mornington Island artist Emily Ngarnal Evans was held on Saturday 9th February. We are very grateful to Emily and her family for making the trip down to Melbourne from their home in the Gulf of Carpentaria for what was a wonderful afternoon.

Emily’s subtle and nuanced paintings are on display at Alcaston Gallery until 1 March 2008. The artist has chosen to hang the works in a diamond shape to reference the Balibal, or Spotted Stingray, her father’s story, which Emily depicts with originality and sophistication.

Please contact the gallery on (03) 9418 6444 or at if you would like further information about these beautiful works.
