With the support of Warakurna Artists, Tim Melville Gallery is proud to present an exhibition of new work by senior Aboriginal painters George Ward Tjungurrayi and Nola Yurnangurnu Campbell from the Ngaanyatjarra Lands of Western Australia.
Now in their late seventies Tjungurrayi and Campbell live at the Wanarn Aged Care Home where a painting programme is administered by the Art Centre at Warakurna.
Every Friday morning the Warakurna Artists crew pack their Toyota with paint and canvas, and make the short (by Australian standards) 100km drive down the Great Central Road. The painting room is set up with straight-backed chairs and generous tables and the elderly residents – many in palliative care – create artworks that represent their cosmology and Country – from “the first mornings in the time before time”.
TMG is proud to introduce paintings of Nola Campbell and George Ward Tjungurrayi, to viewers and collectors in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Opening: Tuesday 12th April from 6pm.
