Quoted from article:
‘Contemporary Aboriginal Art” by Susan McCulloch is an excellent reference book for people interested in buying Aboriginal art.
Among the companies offering tours to remote Aboriginal art communities, two are recommended:
Didgeri Air Tours operates small group tours by plane around the Kimberley and Arnhem Land. A five-day tour goes to Maningrida, Milingimbi, Raminging, Yirrkala and Ngukkur in Northern Arnhem Land. www.didgeri.com.au
Ananguku Arts and Culture, a nonprofit arts body owned by Aboriginal art groups, is working with Wayward Bus to be host of four-day tours of the art centers of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara lands of South Australia. The tours begin and end in Alice Springs and take in Uluru sunrise, campsites in the majestic Musgrave and Everard ranges and visits to at least three art centers: Ernabella, Minymaku, Kaltjiti, Mimili Maku and Iwantja. www.waywardbus.com.au
