Aboriginal & Pacific Art in association with Mimili Maku Arts, South Australia is pleased to present 'Nganampa Manta Lipiwanu - Our Expansive Land', an exhibition of new paintings by Betty Kuntiwa Pumani, Ngupulya Pumani, Willy Muntjantji Martin, Judy Martin, Tuppy Ngintja Goodwin and Puna Yanima. 

The community of Mimili is located within the red granite boulders of the Everard Ranges nearly 500 kilometres south-west of Alice Springs. The community is surrounded by many songlines; invisible ancient tracks that connect communities, following age old boundaries. The art centre takes its name from the maku (witchetty grub) found in the roots of the witchetty bush (Acacia Kempeana) - a significant songline for this area. Mimili Maku Art centre supports many artists living traditionally on surrounding homelands, Sandy Bore, Perentie Bore and Blue Hills. Bush trips to country and important sites keep the Tjukurpa alive and pulsating across the canvas. The artists know how important these stories are and bear this responsibility with pride. 

Tueday - Saturday 10am-5pm
