Central Midlands and Coastal Advocate: Noongar culture celebrated

Gallery: Moora Fine Arts

YOU don't have to head to Broome to see some of the best Aboriginal artwork WA has to offer.
One only has to visit the Moora Fine Arts (MFA) gallery until this weekend to experience the incredible artwork that local Aboriginal artists have crafted.

The MFA's latest exhibition of local indigenous art includes work by Alice Warrell, Sonia Chadd, Alice Yates and Victor Yates.

Opening night saw Mr Yates play his very own handcrafted didgeridoos while the crowd perused the beautiful pieces.

MFA gallery curator Natalie Tonkin said, "A lot of people don't recognise the talents of our local artists.

"You don't have to go to Broome or up north to buy outstanding Aboriginal art pieces. Artists in this region are just as talented."

MFA gallery is open Thursday to Saturday 10am-4pm and also by appointment.
