We’re delighted that people are finding their way to our online shop! Thanks for your support as your purchases help sustain us through the wet season. Injalak Arts’ artists are productive all year round but our direct sales are only in the dry season. We will be uploading fresh stock weekly from now until end of November so make sure you check in regularly. We have lots of SMALL affordable paintings and also some beautiful larger ones. All with FREE SHIPPING. The shop works best for paintings as we can only upload a single image. NB: a certificate of authenticity is provided with every online purchase We will be creating a more 3D (basket/artefacts etc) friendly shop soon. Meanwhile our online Etsy shop is also getting regular attention with newly printed fabrics uploaded a few times a week. Our fabric fans know to keep an eye on that as nearly all our fabrics are one-off colors/designs.Read More
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.Read More
After a monster year we’re all taking a well earned rest. Thanks to everyone who visited us in person, purchased online, shared and commented on our social media, reviewed us on Trip Advisor and WikiCamps or called or sent us emails. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive – so much love!! We look forward to doing it all again AND MORE in 2018.
NB: The art centre administration is now 100% closed. Artworks in both our online store and Etsy can still be browsed, however, if purchased they cannot be dispatched until February 1. Sorry, but it’s unavoidable. Thanks for your patience.Read More
