Bindi’s inaugural group exhibition, Bindi Magic, opened with a bang!
Bindi Magic 2019 opened alongside our new and improved studio – freshly renovated and extended courtesy of Arts Trail funding. Full of celebration of the Bindi Mwerre Anthurre Artists and their expanded, well-lit and certainly well-deserved studio – it was an exciting day.
Desart CEO and long term Bindi supporter, Philip Watkins, opened the show, giving tribute to the important role Bindi has played in the Mparntwe community. Showcasing the best Bindi Mwerre Anthurre art from the past year, as well as two new light shades that were launched at DAAF, the Bindi gallery was filled with vitality, colour and dynamism.
Not to forget, Bindi Mwerre Anthurre Artists’ latest innovation!
A fresh take on the ‘Ducks on the Wall’ legacy of mid 20th century suburban décor, Kukula McDonald’s ‘Cockies on the Wall’ have flown out of her much loved paintings of Red Tail Black Cockatoos flying west over the purple hills of Haasts Bluff. The young Luritja woman has developed real following in the Central Deserts and beyond, having painted at Bindi since 2004. Bindi fans jumped at the chance to accrue the cockies in a different format at Desert Mob Market Place and Bindi Magic, quickly filling their order quotas.
Bindi Mwerre Anthurre Artists Billy Tjampijinpa Kenda and Charles Jangala Inkamala also spoke to their work and their passion for painting country.
Thanks everyone for making another wonderful Bindi Magic Opening!
