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.
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.

Gloria was a special 2020 exhibition showcasing the beautiful and quintessential Leaves paintings by Gloria Petyarre.
