Ngurratjuta artists are the new owners of the Desert Park gift shop

 

A shot in the arm for the watercolour movement ... and chance for visitors to have contact with Aboriginal people

 

It's an opportunity that will surely be the envy of many: the Ngurratjuta art centre has bought the gift shop at the Alice Springs Desert Park. It will be used to exhibit and promote the work of its artists, and provide an income to their enterprise from its trade in the full line of gifts and souvenirs. The Desert Park is also keen to have the artists painting on site and this looks set to happen from late March next year, as the cooler weather arrives. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
