As Alcaston Gallery embarks on our 35th year, we commence the 2023 exhibition year with our All About Art: Annual Collectors' Exhibition – The History of Art Painting the Future (Part 1), which will focus on important represented artists through the gallery's history and the significant impact that their art has had on the next generations of artists in their familial lineage including the extraordinary life and art of the late Sally Gabori and how she unwittingly inspired her children to paint the mind's eye of their home country on Bentinck Island, Queensland. 

The exhibition will include the lineal heritage of creative artists of the south and central desert areas, and the Yolngu artists of Northern Australia, areas unknown to collectors until the artists of Papunya dominated the inspired collectors in the early 1970s and the word slowly spread across our huge land. Artists like the late Mr (Hector) Burton and the late Mr (Ray) Ken, artists and strong cultural leaders who, when given an opportunity to be creative during the establishment of an art centre, created an art movement of renown. 

One of the most significant creative families in Australia is the Yunupiŋu family from Yirrkala, and it will give me tremendous pride to introduce you to Djakaŋu Yunupiŋu, the fourth Yolŋu sister to exhibit in our stable since the first 'Yirrkala' women's screenprints exhibition at Alcaston Gallery in 2001.

Clay comes from the earth; in its many forms, textures and colours, clay harnesses our world’s enigmatic power, energy, and secret life force.

With its affinity to earth and water, clay is an accumulated matrix of plant, animal, and mineral; wet or dry, white or coloured, this natural material has been used since ancient times in the form of ochre in sacred ceremonies and for medicinal purposes, as well as a strong, pliable matter for utilitarian functions such as building, cooking and creating practical ...
