We are now in the middle of dry season and have been having a fantastic 2015. Too busy to even update our website! Thanks to all our new and old friends who have come to visit in person. Also thanks to those of you who have supported us from afar by either visiting our online store or contacting us direct.
In April we launched our Mindil Beach Sunset Market (Darwin) stall that carries a beautiful range of our affordably priced stock - so if you are in Darwin you can shop with us on Thursday and Sunday evenings during the dry season.
Early August will see us in Darwin for two big events: an exhibition at Framed Gallery and the annual extravaganza: Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair that runs from 7 - 9 August at Darwin Convention Centre. We look forward to catching up with our friends from around Australia and the world at this wonderful event.
September will see us with our own exhibition at Tactile Arts Gallery in Darwin and in October we're going south to Adelaide for the inaugural TARNANTHI Festival and Art Fair. The Art Fair will be open on the 9 & 10th October. We'll keep you posted!
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you are interested in visiting or would like to know more about what we do.

Welcome to 2015
We re-opened at the end of January and are now getting organised for 2015. The Bim Gallery was painted last week and the artists and printers are going great guns. The river is still up and no-one can drive in from Darwin/Jabiru yet. So far it's been a bit of dry 'wet season' but now we're getting lots of rain so will probably see the flood plain fill up - good for the sake of all the turtles and other creatures that like water. Hopefully not as much as 2007 when the art centre was flooded! Now is a GREAT time to contact us about shopping - browse our on-line store and if you don't see exactly what you're looking for contact us direct. Send an email to Liz at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her as we have lots of fantastic new wet season stock and no customers in the shop - so let us know what you want. We can respond promptly and send images at this time of the year.

Still lots happening here
Thanks to our dear family and friends who came and helped us celebrate our 25th Birthday. Was a really lovely day and we had a feast and lots of entertainment including printing demonstrations and print-your-own t-shirts. Have a look at our FB page for photos from the day – click here.
We are still really busy working on a range of projects including producing new brochures about the history and heritage of both painting and pandanus weaving. Also, have a look at our products page – we’re uploading some new stock of bags for Christmas that have just arrived from Cambodia. Order quick as we have very limited stock. Or visit us on site – we’re still open five days a week and the river can be crossed no problems at the moment. When you get here check out our new Interpretive Centre and front signage, funded by Tourism NT. Happy to report all our air-conditioning is working – so you can chill and browse.
Letting you all know we’re closing on 12th December for six weeks and will re-open on 27th January 2015 so if you want to visit or order, get in quick.
