Balgo has established a distinctive style of desert artwork, being amongst the first group of desert artists to embrace a broad palette of colours. Its leading artists over the years have included Eubena Nampitjin, Susie Bootja Bootja, Lucy Yukenbarri, Bai Bai Napangati, Helicopter Tjungurrayi, Boxer Milner, Sunfly Tjampitjin and Brandy Tjungurrayi amongst many others. The artists come from a wide range of desert language groups including Kukatja, Warlpiri, Walmajarri, Wangkatjungka, Pintupi and Ngardi.

This special Exhibition not only celebrates the 20th Anniversary of the new Art Centre’s opening and Exhibition, but also showcases the incredible depth of talent both emerging and historic which underpins the remarkable ongoing success of this very talented Community. The future continues to look bright for this seminal Art Centre.
