REDSEA Gallery Brisbane says
UTOPIA SISTERS - The Petyarre Women

OPENING RECEPTION
Thursday 7th April 6-8pm

Exhibition runs from April 5th - May 1st


-- In Collaboration with Delmore Gallery --

This exhibition of the Petyarre women can be seen as a spotlight shining on the virtual centre of Australia, in the middle of an old cattle station called Utopia, Northern Territory. At a place where two ancient tribal lands intersect: The Alyawarre and the Anmatyerre tribes share much more than divides them.

Two groups of artists, not related genetically, but who call each other skin group "sisters", share in an intricate and harmonious tribal kinship system that connects them and their culture in a very special way.

The diversity on show in this exhibition brings many works, some never before seen in public, from little known, emerging artists like Susie, Jessie, Annie, Dorrie and Maisie, to be seen alongside the likes of Gloria Petyarre, who is the biggest selling living female Aboriginal artist. It is a wonderful representation of the variety of interpretive practices explored by these women of Utopia.

Delmore Gallery has been involved in supplying exquisite Aboriginal artworks and curating over fifty exhibitions worldwide and are pleased to be collaborating with REDSEA Gallery to bring this exhibition to reality.

View work by Kathleen Petyarre, Gloria Petyarre, Annie Petyarre, Susie Petyarre, Maisie Bundey and other Australian Indigenous artists!
