  • About the Artists

    Our vibrant and dynamic artists are from the Utopia region; a large remote area of Central Australia which, until recently, had no government funded art centre. As a result of their pioneering efforts, they have one of the strongest and richest art histories.

  • Video: A peek behind the scenes in remote Utopia

    This short video will give you a glimpse of what's its like behind the scenes and in the 'studio'. 

     


     

    After seeing some old YouTube videos our senior curator Dale Jennings made years ago, Sylvaria Jones (pictured) instructed us to make more. As obliged, that's what we've done.

    A note from Dale:

    I was sitting with a group of women who were painting at one of the main outstations when a young woman named Silvaria Jones came over and recognised me from some YouTube videos I made years ago.

    I used to have an old FlipVideo camera then and loved getting footage to put together of my trips, as well as clips of artists talking about their work. These trips are always so special to me and I think people should see where the artwork comes from and also know how genuine the whole experience is and how the artists are so keen to really share their culture and have their artwork adored by someone.

    Sylvaria told me I had to do one of this trip.

    Our hearts are heavy as we mourn the loss of Aunty Barbara Weir. Barbara passed away peacefully on 3 Jan 2023 surrounded by family.

    Artist, friend, family, boss woman, leader, mentor, pioneer. Utopia will never be the same. Barbara was one of the strongest women we knew, and we pray her spirit will guard and protect her family and the people of Utopia as she did in life. 

    Sending love to all her loved ones.
