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.

Dolly Mills Petyarre was one of the most talked about names in Utopia art back in the 90's with group and solo exhibitions across Australia's capital cities.
Now 72, Dolly wants you to know she's not finished yet and has been working on something special after a long hiatus.
Be inspired by the richness of the desert. Warm desert hues are the heroes of this calm yet inviting palette; dusty roses, bright yellows, desert reds and a hint of oasis blue.
More importantly, artworks represent ancient ancestral stories and a deep connection to the desert-like country of remote Central Australia.
