jack dale mengenen launched

It was terrific to go to the launch of Neil McLeod's new book about prominent indigenous artist, Jack Dale Mengenen last week. Not only about Jack's artwork, the book details Jack's life growing up in the Kimberley and his insights into his culture and traditions.

Pictured from left to right: Cr Samantha Dunn, Neil McLeod, Tiriki Onus and Cr Noel Cliff with one of Jack's works in the background.

The launch coincides with the latest exhibition at Burrinja, Stories of Ancestors. It features works by members of the Nganjmirra family from Western Arnhem land, some of them never exhibited before.

It's well worth a visit, visually breathtaking.
