Japingka Gallery is launching its 2005 Indigenous Fine Art Exhibition programme with an important exhibition of major new works by the leading artists from this remarkable and remote Community (270 kms north east of Alice Springs).

The Community of Utopia has a very long history of artistic tradition and has produced some of the best-known Indigenous artists of our time. Including, nationally and internationally acclaimed artists such as the late Emily Kngwarreye, as well as Minnie Pwerle, Barbara Weir, Kathleen Petyarre and Gloria Petyarre. All of whom are now represented in our various State and National Galleries and major private collections.
