Papunya Tula Artist’s annual Alice Springs exhibition opened last Friday night to celebrate the women painters of Papunya Tula Artists Pty Ltd. This year marks a significant milestone in the thirty-five year history of Papunya Tula Artists Pty Ltd. It has now been ten years since two small groups of women in Kintore and Kiwirrkura created their first works for the company. This year’s annual show celebrates the significant contribution the women artists have made to Pintupi painting and the continuing impact they have had on contemporary Australian art. This exhibition showcases recent works by the company’s established and emerging female artists, as well as selected works by the male artists. The night was attended by artists and shareholders; Makinti Napanangka, Tjunkiya Napaltjarri, Wintjiya Napaltjarri, Eileen Napaltjarri and Narrabri Nakamarra. Yet again a strong crowd helped open what has become Papunya Tula Artists premiere exhibition event. The show was officially opened by long time supporter of PTA, David Larwill.
