These photos are from Papunya Tjupi’s recent trip to Darwin for the prestigious Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards which Charlotte Phillipus Napurrula was selected for. Charlotte travelled to Darwin with us to celebrate this amazing achievement.
Five Papunya women showed strong works in this exhibition including Isobel Gorey, Candy Nelson, Martha McDonald, Tilau Nangala and Maureen Poulson. Maureen travelled to represent the women. This was a great trip and great exposure to all types of art and culture from around the country and professional develepment for all involved. Art workers Rosena Leo and John Scott Rowe were working at selling lots of art works from Papunya to the public and collectors The Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair.
Papunya Tjupi is feeling proud for everyone involved! Thanks from Emma!
