Kitty Simon and the Ladies of Lajamanu: Exhibition opening

Where

Cooee Art Gallery
When

Friday 6 March from 6pm to 8pm

Painting in remote Aboriginal communities part of a rich community cultural life. The work of individual artists can never be considered in isolation.

After Cooee’s intimate 30 year association with the women of Lajamanu it therefore seems appropriate, that we give expression to the continuing legacy of Warlpiri culture by paying tribute to two of its female elders who passed on and exhibiting their works alongside two of the women carrying and nurturing Warlpiri culture and community into the future.

In this exhibition, Kitty Simon and the Ladies of Lajamanu, we will exhibit works by Kitty Simon Napanangka and Myra Herbert Nungurrayi, alongside a selection works from the gallery archives by Lilly Hargraves Nungurrayi and Lorna Fencer Napurrula.
