2011 Paintings from Warakurna and Wanarn
Warakurna is a remote community situated on the Great Central Road in the Ngaanyatjarra Lands of Western Australia, approximately 330km from Uluru near the border with the Northern Territory. Warakurna has a long history of artistic expression. In March 2005 the art centre studio was opened amid much enthusiasm and excitement. Warakurna Artists is owned and governed by Aboriginal people and provides services to artists living in and visiting Warakurna and the nearby community of Wanarn.
Warakurna Artists is an energetic, creative and happy place, where men and women, young and old, paint and share Tjukurrpa (traditional law and culture) and contemporary stories. Passing on these important stories to young people is a critical means of keeping culture vital and strong.
