You know it's been a bumper year when the last post said 'It's August already' and there hasn't been time to update it since. What can we say about 2015? There have been exhibitions, projects, trips out bush, trips away, commissions, staff arriving and leaving, funerals (too many), record sales and thousands of visitors from all over the world. We've just done our final Darwin Market for the year with an outstanding Saltwater Craft Fair and are now making plans for our pre-Xmas SALE. Meanwhile Gunbalanya is in the full furnace heat of Kurrung the 'build-up' with Kurnumeleng looming and visitors have slowed to a trickle. The river is still easy to cross, the aircons are working and we have cool drinks in the frig so come and visit while you can. Please note Injalak Arts will be closed from 12 December - 27 January 2016.

It’s August already!!
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 email@example.com 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.
