  • 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.

    Sugarbag by Susan Hunter (SOLD)

    30cm x 30cm

    This painting by Susan Hunter depicts Sugarbag.

    Sugarbag is a term used to describe honey collected by native bees who deposit them into sacks on trees. Sometimes these sacks can be quite large, the size of a human head.

    For many Aboriginal people in Central Australia, it is a favourite pastime to go and collect sugarbag - a delicious natural treat to bring back to the community.
