Look at this beautiful book that @rubyyybov and @franka_wilkinson helped us make about our bush medicines! Wi bin meigimbat display garra sop and "jorrdor" (bush tilip) bla shop langa at senta.

One more carving by Martin and daughter Suerina, which is painted with water flowers along its base.

Another beautiful sculpture for sale by Martin Davy, and his students, "saltwater long tom". One of the results of our Young Makers carpentry revival program. $75 plus post.

For sale, $75 plus post. "Marguwul (Silver Perch)" by Dianne Hall and her granddaughter Sharlene (first-time sculptor!). "The old fellow showed her how to do the design: water weeds, and the yellow bits are the eggs that are laid in the cold-weather time. I showed her how to do the painting; if she made a mistake, made it scribbly, how to go over and make it neat". Here's to the next generation of Minyerri artists :)

Roper Region artists represent! Jonathon Walla's mululbirri looks pleased to be in the company of a bright #gwennethblitner painting from @ngukurrarts, at the @gyracc Katherine Art Prize. #minyerriarts #traditionalcarving #echidnasofinstagram

Happy NAIDOC week! This week's theme is "Our Languages Matter". Our Alawa colouring book was chosen by the Dept. of the Environment & Energy for their annual colouring in comp - we're really proud that people across Australia get to share in our language and be a part of its revitalisation. 'Lerrin da aldin' means leaves and flowers, illustration by Agnes Wilfred. #naidoc #naidocweek #AlawaKantri #indigenouslanguage

Get down and part-part! AKA: party at the art centre. But we were too busy cooking and getting artworks ready to worry about the how's and Y's. GREAT poster by one of the kids.

What a lovely spot for a governance meeting! Cuppa tea and snacks down by the billabong, with Lil from @elpaustralia and Ruby, who volunteered last year and is back for a visit. We welcomed Martin as our nyuwan director, yumarr! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ

Regram from our lovely supporter @ibadams, who received a package of our bush medicine soaps plus a few sprigs of Dumbuyumbu and Gulbarn. We're gathering feedback to help us refine our soaps and packaging. #minyerriarts #socialenterprise.
