PTA ANNUAL EXHIBITION – 6pm FRIDAY 22nd NOVEMBER

Papunya Tula Artists are thrilled to announce the date of our end of year exhibitions. On Friday November 22nd PTA will be presenting three shows opening simultaneously on the Friday night at 6pm.

Gallery 1 will be showing, ‘Recent Works’, a collection of stunning, up to the minute recent paintings by the men and women artists of Kintore and Kiwirrkura.

In Gallery 2 we will be honouring a group of artists who are all currently receiving renal dialysis. These artists include Patrick Tjungurrayi, Hilary Tjapaltjarri, Ningura Napurrula and her son Morris Gibson Tjapaltjarri. The proceeds from this show will be donated to the Western Desert Dialysis Unit to assist in extending its services further west to the Kiwirrkura Community. Significantly, this will mean that Patrick Tjungurrayi can finally move back to Kiwirrkura where he can receive treatment at home.

In Gallery 3 we will be presenting ‘Tjupurrulaku’, a much anticipated solo exhibition by Johnny Yungut Tjupurrula. This will undoubtedly be one of the finest exhibitions ever hosted at our Alice Springs gallery and, along with the show by the dialysis patients, will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.

We are also delighted to announce that ‘Tjupurrulaku’ will be opened by Nici Cumpston, Curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art at the Art Gallery of South Australia.
