  • 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.

    November 10, 2017 1 min read

    Enchanted runs from Friday 10 Nov through 19 January, over the holiday season and into the summer.

    Be captivated by the movement, flow, energy, excitement and enchantment of the 24 artworks that make up Enchanted

    Small Barbara Weir Grass Seed Dreaming

    Gloria Petyarre's works have enchanted the country for over two decades.

    One of her large Leaves paintings won the Australian Wynne Prize in 1999, representing the best Australian landscape. This was the first Aboriginal artwork to win this award since its inception in 1897. Gloria's enchanting works represent leaves being swept across the desert floor.

    Likewise, Barbara Weir has had a captivated audience nationally and abroad since the 1990's due largely to her Grass Seed paintings. Her artworks also express foliage that appears to move and sway with the call of the wind. 

    It was quite a time after Gloria Petyarre began painting Leaves that it became acceptable for others to paint similar designs. Sacha Long Petyarre and Mary Petyarre of Utopia are two who we work closely with have painted some enchanting pieces we couldn't resist. Sacha's large 180m x 120cm Wild Flowers in warm tones being one.

    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.
