Metropolis is proudly exhibiting a selection of recent paintings by leading and emerging women painters from the artists’ company communities of Kintore and Kiwirrkura. Following a women’s camp in the 1990s derived to explore painting in there own right, the painting women began to emerge as an important and influential aspect of the Western Desert art movement. In subsequent years women artists have received recognition through major art awards and exhibitions and are considered among the leaders of the movement.
The exhibition is from 19 April to 5 May 2012. More at: www.metropolisgallery.com.au
