In what is a truly remarkable success story, and within the short space of just two and a half years, the talented artists of the Wangkatjungka Community (pronounced wongka-jongka) have overcome enormous obstacles to take their art and culture all the way from their remote Kimberley Community situated on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert to the acclaim of the urban art centre of the world, New York and the prestigious 2004 New York Contemporary Art Fair.
Since the Wangkatjungka Art Project began exhibiting around Australia, many of the artists have made the most of the opportunity to travel out of their country for the first time. Four of the Artists will be making the long trip down from the Kimberley to attend the opening of their Tali & Jila Exhibition and they are really looking forward to meeting new people and telling them the stories of their Country as depicted in their unique paintings. Not to be Missed!
