DESERT COLOURS – the radiance of desert colour

29 May – 9 June
Curl Curl, SYDNEY

Honey Ant Gallery Spinifex Desert Travels

Australia’s desert centre can appear an inhospitable environment. The quality of light can be glaring and harsh, and the terrain rugged and unforgiving. But it’s from this seemingly unpromising place that an explosion of colour and creativity has been springing for decades.

The colour of sunrise, sunset, sandhills, low lying scrub, the changing seasons, flora and fauna – all constant sources of inspiration for Indigenous artists painting their ancestral stories on to canvas.

View masterpieces by leading artists Kudditji Kngwarreye, Minnie Pwerle and Polly Kngale, as well as promising rising and affordable talent.

LOCATION:
Creative Space, 105 Abbott Road, North Curl Curl
Ample parking available.

SHOWING:
29 May – 9 June

OPEN:
10am – 4pm, Wed – Sun (closed Mon / Tue)
