About

Beaver Galleries are delighted to present a new exhibition of weavings from Bula’Bula Arts one of Australia’s most significant art centres. This exhibition focuses on the weavings made by the women artists of the community, showcasing beautiful natural fibres and masterful techniques. Bula’bula Arts, located in Ramingining in Northeast Arnhem Land, has a core objective to preserve and foster Yolngu culture. The women of Gurrwiliny (the Arafura wetlands) use pandanus, sandbark and kurrajong fibres, spun and subtly coloured with natural dyes, to create exuberant and elegant pieces. The women’s fine techniques give rise to a variety of sculptural forms and textures which lay witness to the long and powerful cultural continuity. This stunning exhibition has been planned to coincide with Naidoc week, a celebration of the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
