Dates: 08.08.08 : 24.09.08

The Watiyawanu Artists and the community at Mt Liebig have historically held close ties with the Pintupi artists of the Western Desert. Shorty Lungkata, Uta Uta Tjangala, Yala Yala Gibbs, Johnny Warangkula, Mick Namarari, Billy Stockman and Long Tom Tjapanangka have all at various times lived at Mt Liebig. The community is now confirming its reputation as a major art producing centre. Its senior artists include Bill Whiskey Tjapaltjarri, Wentja 2 Napaltjarri, Ngoia Pollard Napaltjarri and Lilly Kelly Napangardi. Younger and emerging artists also exhibit work that reflects the strong familial ties to the Western Desert art movement. This exhibition is presented in association with the Watiyawanu Artists of Amunturrngu.
