Muinu Kaipai Ngapa Kulai Ya


Dennis Nona’s exhibition of paintings, linocut prints, etchings and a massive wooden turtle sculpture launches at 6pm Friday December 8th.  

Dennis will be here at the gallery along with some other Badu Islanders.  His new works differ through his use of local clays and colouring agents including mangrove bark juice.

These are exciting and affordable!

 

Upcoming exhibitions


December is always busy for everyone so it’s fast and furious here at Art Mob with Naomi Hobson coming down to launch her inaugural Tasmanian exhibition featuring 10 paintings from Coen in far north Queensland.  She has a strong record and her works will delight you!

January will feature paintings from the ladies of Lockhart River with Enoch Perazim, the art centre’s manager, travelling with artist Irene Namok to launch the show on the 12th.  February showcases our Top 20 most popular artists from 2017.  There will be some surprises there for sure!
EMILY AT AUCTION
The art world was in awe of the new record set by the $2.1M achieved for Earth Creation I by the late Emily Kame Kngwarreye.  This was a new auction record set for an Australian woman artist and equals the auction record for an Australian indigenous artwork.  Congratulations to Adrian Newstead and Mirri Leven who battled the odds to make this auction happen.  Art Mob stocks a fine range of Emily’s paintings including #15 of the 24 final series works that she painted just 2 weeks before she died.
Aurukun Dogs
In Mongolia we learned the usual way to greet a nomad herder was to say "Nokhoi Khori!".  This translates to “Hold the dogs!”.  So we are holding 8 new dogs from various artists at Aurukun.  They have travelled many kilometres to get here and are keen to keep travelling to their new homes.  Select your favourite(s) and we will include a couple of the painted metal Yuendumu dogs to keep them company.

Ultra-pointillism

Every 6 months Cameron Ross Kemarre calls to let us know that another of his exquisite paintings is on its way to us.  He paints using the tip of a skewer and the result is quite extraordinary.  He depicts scenes from his youth – often the white kangaroo, the seven sisters and fish in the Finke River.  If you are after a special Christmas present then this could be it!
