Photographing works for the database.  Steve, Anderson and Neil with a large work, "Turkey Dreaming" by Lily Nungarrayi Hargraves

 

A Northern Territory Indigenous Owned Art Centre

The Warnayaka Art Gallery is located in Australia, in Lajamanu, NT. We specialise in Indigenous Aboriginal Art. The Lajamanu Community is 580kms south west of Katherine, Northern Territory. Lajamanu is half way between Alice Springs and Darwin. Lajamanu has a population of around 900 Warlpiri people and their stories are part of their art. Artists in Lajamanu have been finalists in the Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Awards.

Work is underway on the humpy construction for the YAMA installation. Despite the heat,  Neil Jupurrurla Cooke - one of the lead artists - was working on installing the corrugated iron walls today. Here, he talks to collaborating artist Gretta Louw about the process.

It's starting to come together!
