We’re teetering on the edge of the early dry season – this time of year is called Bangkerreng. There are still plenty of showers around but the monsoon has passed, the floodplains are gradually drying and Cahill’s Crossing is almost traversable. And it’s time to go fishing!! It’s only a matter of days or a couple of weeks and we’ll be getting visitors again. Our first major event for the year is ‘The Whacky Show’ currently on exhibition (and we use the term loosely) at Don Whyte Framing in Coconut Grove, Darwin. Injalak Arts and Don Whyte have had a relationship spanning more than 25 years. Don was the in-house framer at Framed Gallery before striking out on his own. He’s never looked back and is now one of the go-to framers in Australia. His expertise in framing our works on paper is unparalleled. We’ve had a growing collection of quirky, whacky creations gradually assembling themselves in a box – and they deserve an audience. Don has a wall he allows artists and art centres to present artworks on. He takes no commission and is very generous with the space and takes the time to hang and present the works with care. The works are now all up on the wall and include unframed works on paper, carvings, small number of barks, a couple of weavings, mixed media and a singularly well-hung BewkBewk limited edition print (that we have multiple copies of for sale). There are more than 80 petite, highly affordable pieces of art on show. The works will be on display until 19th May.
We still have plenty of stock in our online Etsy shop – but don’t forget we close it sometime in May because onsite demand gets too much to keep stocking it. Look out for one more big sale before we close it.
