Durrmu Arts launched a great new website, http://www.durrmu.com.au/ in late March this year.
Durrmu Arts, the Peppimenarti community art program, is renowned for its fine, contemporary art production, including acrylic painting and fibre work. Senior artist Regina Pilawuk Wilson (winner, General Painting, Telstra National Indigenous Art Award 2003) leads a team of talented emerging and established artists including Miriam Byrnes, Kevin Gilbert, Linda Gilbert, Daisy Pandella Jimarin, Mabel Jimarin, Kathleen Korda, Margaret Kundu, Teresa Lemon, Patsy Marfura, Rosina Tirak, Annunciata Wilson, Anastasia Wilson and Anne-Carmel Wilson.
Durrmu Arts is a member of ANKAAA - the association of Northern, Kimberley and Arnhem Aboriginal Artists.
The paintings of Peppimenarti are based upon traditional weaving and durrmu (dot body painting) designs. These are complemented by the women artists’ premium pandanus and sand-palm fibre weaving work.
