Long moment in the sun for artists from The Lands

Photo: Painting by Telstra Award winner for 2011, Dickie Minyintiri.

All year Alice Springs has had its window onto the Aboriginal art of
the moment, that outpouring of cultural affirmation and expressive
brilliance coming from 'The Lands' – home to the Pitjantjatjara and
Yankunytjatjara peoples. Apart from his stockroom shows, the astute
Dallas Gold of Raft Artspace has had his eyes fixed firmly on the
south-west. The timing for his current show from Ernabella Arts couldn't
have been better. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
