WOMEN TELLING STORIES - ARELHE MAPE ALTYERRE ILEME

Yarrenyty Arltere Artists and Tangentyere Artists hail from the Town Camps of Alice Springs. They have created an art movement unique to Australia and their communities that celebrates culture and the everyday with ingenuousness. The women in this exhibition are directly inspired by their families, stories and experiences. The artwork is irreverent, cheeky and at times challenging. It also speaks of the women's journey toward art and the skills required to tell a story that embraces life for what it is using an innate sense of colour, a natural ability to tell a story and the deftness of making the everyday seem magic. Short St Gallery celebrates the ethos that is Women Telling Stories. We have a special focus on Grace Kemarre Robinya and Sally M Mulda within this exhibition and would like to express our sorrow at the passing of Town Camp great Kunmanara Boko and her contribution to the Town Camp story. With this exhibition we honour this wonderful woman and celebrate her rich life. OPENS 7 MARCH 2018
