etchings from utopia

Earlier this week I attended the launch of Apmer Mwerrangker*, Beautiful Country… Ever Present Past - Etchings from the Utopia region, Central Australia at Burrinja.

The exhibition features iconic works by some of the most highly regarded Aboriginal artists of the Sandover region, the Urapuntja Artists of Utopia and is made up of 23 etchings produced in 1999 to 2000 at the Ampiliwatja community with Basil Hall of Northern Editions NTU.

It is well worth a visit, if you would like to know more about the exhibition follow this link to

(*Apmer Mwerrangker” is pronounced: ‘ab mirrah’ ‘ma rung gara’)

It is a very exciting time for Burrinja and its redevelopment, detailed plans of the new performing arts centre space are being drawn up and once complete the project will go out to tender for construction.

It will be a great to see the redevelopment get underway and it is very exciting to know we are very close to starting construction on this long overdue and keenly sought after facility.
