Where Creeks Cross
New Australian Aboriginal Paintings from Ikuntji
4:00 – 6:00 p.m.
The word "Ikuntji" means "where creeks cross" in the tribal language of the region. This exhibition will showcase 16 acrylics on canvas by leading and emerging female painters, all members of the Ikuntji Art Centre, a regional cooperative managed by Aboriginal women. The show includes paintings by Anmanari Napanangka, Benita Napurrula Multa, Daphne Napurrula , Keturah Nangala Zimran, Marinka Nangala Marshall, Mavis Nampitjinpa, Patricia Napurrula Multa, Benisa Napurrula Marks, Linda Napurrula Ngitanka, and Eunice Napanangka Jack.
Nana Booker, who heads the gallery and serves as Australia's Honorary Consul/Texas, said, "The artists of Ikuntji bring a unique vision to their work, translating the ever-changing colors of mountain landscapes into abstract paintings, some with seemingly simple but actually sophisticated color fields and forms. These contemporary paintings reflect both the traditional lands traveled by Australia's indigenous people for thousands of years and their evolving culture."
