  • 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.

  • Awelye by Charmaine Pwerle

    150cm x 90cm

    Charmaine paints awelye (women's ceremony) for her grandmother's country.

    Women's ceremonies are performed to demonstrate respect for the land and ancestors, and ensure well-being and happiness within their community.

    Charmaine's grandmother, Minnie Pwerle, was renowned for painting similar markings depicting awelye for Atnwengerrp country which lies in a remote region of Central Australia called Utopia. Charmaine's relatives still reside there.

    Markings in this painting are symbolic of different elements of this awelye such as sacred dance sites, Dreamtime stories and body paint designs.
