Explore a diverse range of Aboriginal Art on the Art Bus which will be doing a continuous loop of the Aboriginal Art Precinct on Saturday 21 June as part of the Alice Springs Beanie Festival 2014.
Come and join Ngurratjuta Iltja Ntjarra Arts Centre, Tjanpi Desert Weavers, Yarrenyty Arltere Artists and Tangentyere Artists as they showcase a variety of local art. From delicate watercolours (for sale at Tangentyere gallery) to phenomenal fibre art; to innovative art, film and sculpture to painted stories of the Town Camps. This is a fantastic way to support local and 100% Indigenous owned arts enterprises.
The Aboriginal Art Precinct is pleased to be presenting the Art Bus for this year’s Beanie Fest and encourages all art lovers to experience the wonder of these talented artists. Running a continuous loop from 10am and at a cost of only $5 per person, travellers will be able to view four very different art forms!
Another highlight of the day will be the presentation at the “Five generations: The strength of Namatjira’s legacy” Exhibition at the Araluen Art Gallery. Presented by Araluen Curator Stephen Williamson, this promises to be an exciting insight into the famous painter, his watercolours and the legacy he has left behind. The talk will be a one off starting at 11am with the chance to see works from Namatjira himself and the subsequent generations who continue his legacy.
The Bus will depart from outside Witchetty’s at the Araluen Cultural Precinct from 10am with the last run at 2pm. And all the art centres will remain open until 3pm for those wanting to peruse a little longer!
