Description

The Aboriginal Art Gallery, located in Kings Park overlooking the Swan River and the City of Perth, was established first in Hay Street, Perth in 1992, as a venue to exhibit the art of Western Australian Indigenous artists.

The Gallery has been at its present location for the past 15 years. This Kings Park location offers a premium location that encourages appreciation of Aboriginal culture, their contribution to Australian history, family kinship and respect for the land.

The Aboriginal Art Gallery gives visitors the opportunity to meet and talk to Aboriginal artists and observe them as they work, listen to their stories unfold in music and dance performances from some of Western Australia's leading Aboriginal artists. Visitors to the gallery, both national and international, have the opportunity to be a part of the reconciliation between the original inhabitants of Australia and the people who have made this country their home over the past 200 years.

Art is central to Aboriginal culture. In a culture with no written language, it was used to record the beliefs and stories from the Dreaming and to pass these on to each successive generation. "Aboriginal culture represented through art has been dated at over 40,000 years old."

Aboriginal art, while fulfilling its earlier role is now also being used by artists to express and describe the contemporary issues impacting on their lives.

This has expanded the boundaries of Aboriginal Art, from works traditionally rendered on rock, bark and sand using natural ochre, to works using oils, watercolour and acrylic paints, etchings, gauche, collage and solvent transfer prints.

The gallery's reputation is substantially recognised throughout the Aboriginal community and amongst collectors of fine Indigenous art around the world.

The curatorial and management staff of the gallery has extensive knowledge of Western Australian Indigenous art and have expanded the gallery's interest to include the Central Desert region of Utopia. We invite you to experience a journey through Aboriginal art with a variety of innovative, contemporary and traditional Aboriginal art and artefacts.

  • Open Days/times:Wednesday - Saturday 11am - 4pm (by appointment on other days)

  • Open Days:Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday

Description

Founded as ‘Indigenart’ in 1993 in Perth by Dr Diane Mossenson and her husband Dan, it has since grown to include galleries in both Perth and Melbourne, exhibiting the finest art by both Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian artists.

In establishing Indigenart, Diane Mossenson was motivated by the fact that there was no other gallery in Perth dedicated to high-quality Indigenous artworks. Mossenson took this pioneering outlook into the range and styles of artwork that she exhibited. Not content to follow the pack, she strove to exhibit challenging, innovative and exciting artists, rather than already established painters. Mossenson Galleries soon became defined as a trailblazing epicentre for the exciting emerging Indigenous art movement. Glancing over the past 18 years reveals a litany of first solo exhibitions from artists who have gone on to define the indigenous art movement.

With a keen eye for emerging talent, Mossenson has worked tirelessly to promote community art centres – from established centres like Papunya Tula Artists and Maningrida Arts and Culture – through to emerging centres like Minymaku (Tjala), Kalumburu, Iwantja, Waralungku and Milingimbi. It is as a mentor and advisor to artists that Diane Mossenson has found the greatest fulfilment. Mossenson has steered the careers of artists like Shane Pickett, Ngarra, Loongkoonan and Omborrin, in many cases, guiding them from the moment of their very first painting, through to the completion of their final works. She has facilitated projects for her artists, including major commissions, print projects and overseas exhibitions.

In 2006, Mossenson Galleries expanded its interests to include non-Indigenous artists, showing major exhibitions from artists including Col Jordan, Emanuel Raft, Graham Kuo and Peter Pinson. With a keen eye for serious artworks, Mossenson Galleries’ stable of non-Indigenous artists reflects a continuing engagement with inspiring and important artwork.

Mossenson Galleries’ innovation and trend-setting has been acknowledged by public institutions, including the National Gallery of Australia, the National Museum of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria, the Art Gallery of South Australia, and the Art Gallery of Western Australia, which regularly source works from them.

Mossenson Galleries is an accredited tourist business and an officially approved provider to the Western Australian Government. Indigenart has been a finalist in the State Tourism Awards for five years, winning a certificate of merit in 2000. Indigenart is a member of the Australian Commercial Galleries Association, the Association of Western Australian Art Galleries and Tourism Council Western Australia. The galleries are committed to the highest standards of ethics, whilst presenting some of the finest contemporary art available in Australia. Each boasts an extensive stockroom, holding works from represented artists and communities, in all media.

Mossenson Galleries provides consultancy services for the selection and placement of works into collections, both private and corporate. Mossenson Galleries Subiaco also incorporates an in-house framing, restoration and conservation service.

  • Open Days/times:Monday - Friday 9am - 5pm, Saturday - Sunday 10am - 3pm (Dry Season: May to October)

Details

  • Open Days:Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday,Sunday

Description

Mowanjum Art and Culture Centre - Spirit of the Wandjina “Every race of people has a culture to follow. If you lose your culture you are floating. Lost. The artists are strong, but they know it is their job to pass on their knowledge to young people – to keep the spirit of the Wandjina alive.”(Donny Woolagoodja, artist, elder, Chairman of Mowanjum Artists Spirit of the Wandjina Aboriginal Corporation]

“Wandjinas are our supreme spiritual beings. During Lailai or creation time we believe the Wandjinas created the earth and all living things. The stories of their actions during Lailai are the law and culture of our country. When Wandjinas are painted their spirit is renewed, and their stories are re-lived. Painting Wandjinas reconnects us to the Law. During Lailai the first people were Gyorn Gyorns and they lacked true understanding until the Wandjina taught them Law. The Gyorn Gyorn paintings are there in the rock and sometimes Wandjinas are painted alongside. The Wandjinas created everything and blessed the country with child spirits or what we call Unguds. These spirits live in rock pools and sacred places back in our country. Everyone from the three tribes has an Ungud and a dreaming place. Having created the world, the Wandjinas then painted themselves into cave walls in our countries. The Wandjinas are now here in everything, in the rocks, plants, animals, water, sea, sky and ocean, in all of existence. Our culture IS the Wandjina.” [Leah Umbagai and Kirsty Burgu, artists 2010]

To the Worrorra, Ngarinyin and Wunumbal people, from the Mowanjum community outside Derby, Western Australia, the Wandjina is the supreme spirit being. These three language groups are the traditional owners of the lands lying to the north of Derby and often move between Mowanjum and communities in their homelands, where they look after their country and instruct young people in cultural matters. They have distinct languages but share a complex relationship and marriage system which means the web of mutual obligation and responsibility [wunan] is understood and practised across the region. They also share a vast knowledge of the animals and plants of the west Kimberley. But the greatest factor which unifies the people is the sharing of beliefs about the Wandjina whose images are found in rock shelters throughout their land. 

Worrorra lands are located along the coastal areas, including Cone Bay, Secure Bay, Walcott Inlet and the lower reaches of the Prince Regent River. To the east lie the Ngarinyin lands which extend in a north easterly direction from King Leopold Ranges to the Gibb River Rd. The Wunumbal country lies north of the Prince Regent River, although some traditional owners live at Kandiwal on the Mitchell Plateau and at Kalumburu.
 
The Mowanjum artists are creating images of stories that have been passed down through generations over a period of 100 centuries or more. They believe in the Wandinjas just as strongly today as their ancestors did soon after Lailai.
Today, thanks to the efforts of Mowanjum elders and artists, the Wandjina culture continues to evolve through the sharing of art and stories with the wider community, and as the Mowanjum children rediscover their own beliefs and heritage. 50 children from Mowanjum performed recently in the annual Festival held each July.“The annual Mowanjum Festival is an event we really look forward to. Passing culture onto the next generation through traditional song, dance and art, is the strong foundation of the community. All the work artists make at Mowanjum helps to connect us with our distant homelands. The spirit of the Wandjina is alive and strong at Mowanjum.” Leah Umbagai 2010

This generosity of spirit has changed many people who have come into contact with the Mowanjum Community, allowing them to experience an incredible journey of discovery and giving them a deeper understanding and appreciation of the richness of this ancient Indigenous culture. Mowanjum Art and Culture Centre welcomes more than 20,000 visitors every year. Mowanjum Festival is held in July each year, in the first week of the Western Australian school holidays.

Open Mon to Fri Oct to April, and daily from May to September
Closed from Xmas to end Jan

The gallery has been under intense renovations for the last 12 months, and we are pleased to announce its reopening in the second half of 2017.

The gallery takes a very modest commission which does not meet our operational costs, but we are committed to providing the Birriliburu with a gallery that pays them fairly, respects their copyright and treats their work and culture with respect.

Artists draw inspiration from the stunning landscape in this region which includes the Canning Stock Route, Gunbarrel Highway, numerous Rock holes such as North Pool and Bowanoo to name just a few.

In addition, we receive significant support from the Australian Government through Indigenous Visual Art Industry Support funding. Without the Shire of Wiluna and the federal government, Tjukurba would simply not exist and could not continue to operate.

The gallery is open on weekdays from 8:30am to 4pm, except on public holidays and between the Christmas and New Year period. Appointments can be made to view artwork on the weekend by contacting our Art Gallery Manager Sara Walker on 0468 680 181.
