A collection of fluid pieces in desert twilight colours. Accented with golden-yellows, dusty rose and a touch of zesty yellow-green.
Featured is a 90cm x 60cm new Grass Seed Dreamingby Barbara Weir.
Small brush strokes overlap and weave to create a swaying effect like the movement of native grass. The grass seed, called lyaw, is ground and made into damper and was an important staple food of the Aboriginal people of Utopia.
Painted with Matisse's Midnight Blue, Hookers Green, Australian Olive Green, Permanent Light Violet, Burnt Umber, Australian Ghost Gum and Titanium White.
The collection also highlights new paintings by Dulcie Pwerle Long and Jeannie Mills Pwerle in burnt umbers, yellow-greens and dusty roses.
PPatsy Long Kemarre has a new large piece with a subtle dusty rose in the background of her otherwise traditional ochre coloured masterpiece.

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.
