Time is running out for you to visit the two exhibitions currently featured at the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery (LWAG), as both close this Saturday 12 May 2012.
Purnu, Tjanpi, Canvas: Art of the Ngaanyatjarra Lands showcases recent Yarnangu acrylic painting in context with the enduring tradition of purnu (wood carving) and tjanpi (grass weaving).
This exhibition provides a new lens through which to better understand the inventiveness and artistry of the Western Desert's Ngaanyatjarra people.
Also on show is The Money Story, the first exhibition presented by the Cruthers Collection of Women's Art.
The Money Story is Aboriginal art as you have never seen it. The exhibition explores social issues like domestic violence and youth suicide, and provides an insider's view of the Aboriginal art movement and its impact on the community of Warburton.
