Lost Legends Exhibition Now Open

February 03, 2017 1 min read

Lost Legends showcases the extraordinary works of three Utopia Aboriginal artists, now passed, described as 'the founders of Utopia art' and among Aboriginal art's most respected leaders during the Aboriginal art boom of the 1990's.

These artists are Greeny Purvis Petyarre, Ada Bird Petyarre and Nancy Kunoth Petyarre.

All three were born in the 1930's and grew up in close proximity together.

Passing within two years of each other, they each left a legacy both culturally and artistically, that has faded disappointingly from the spotlight, due in large because their art is scarce to find; having been whisked into private collections upon their passing.

The exhibition aims tobring backa hint of the old glory these three renowned artists brought to the industry, and to consider how their art has shaped the Utopia Aboriginal Art movement. There is more information on the Lost Legends exhibition page.

Today there are very few paintings by these artists available for sale and they are becoming increasingly difficult to source. For this exhibition, we were challenged with this very notion and now proudly present eighteen exquisite, timeless and 'lost' artworks by Ada, Nancy and Greeny Petyarre.

We hope you enjoy the exhibition, and if you are overcome with a deep desire to share, comment, or like we love you for it. We will always share your tangible feedback with the artists when possible.
