This significant archival exhibition celebrates important artists associated with the ground-breaking Ngukurr School of Art who inspired director Beverly Knight to first open Alcaston Gallery in 1989.

These trailblazing artists include Ginger Riley Munduwalawala, Willie Gudabi, Djambu Barra Barra, Wilfred Ngalandarra and Barney Ellaga, who all went on to be recognised as significant contemporary Australian Aboriginal artists and widely collected both nationally and overseas.

Indigenous writer, cultural critic and independent researcher Tristen Harwood, a descendent of Numbulwar where the Rose River opens onto the Gulf of Carpentaria, has written an insightful and personal essay Place of many stories to accompany this important exhibition.

Alcaston Gallery is currently closed in accordance with government restrictions.

The exhibition is available to view online. View the exhibition here.
