How Artworks Are Sent

Ochre / Kimberley artworks are shipped on canvas or linen, already stretched, ready to hang unless stated otherwise.

Acrylic artworks are shipped on canvas or linen un-stretched, rolled up in a cardboard tube unless stated otherwise.

These artworks will need to be stretched on a stretcher board before hanging.

This can be done by nearly any picture framer (highly recommended) or you can DIY if you’re confident in your handiwork.

There are numerous "how to" videos on YouTube showing you how to achieve this.

Artist Profile

When Minnie Pwerle passed away in March 2006, she left a legacy of artworks memorable for their amazing colour and flowing imagery. Three of her sisters are carrying on the tradition of Minnie’s depiction of the art of Utopia, each with their own individual style but all boldly displaying the same inspiration and zest for art and their culture and love of their country.

Galya Pwerle is one of eight children and was born in the Utopia Station region of the Northern Territory.

Galya started painting in 2004. At that time Minnie’s daughter, the well known artist Barbara Weir organised a number of workshop where her three aunts – Molly, Emily and Galya – worked collaboratively and individually to produce a series of paintings based on ceremony and their Dreaming stories.

Like her sisters, Galya’s main title is Awelye Atnwengerrp and whilst the sisters share the same Dreaming, each one has their own interpretation of her Dreaming.

Awelye Atnwengerrp or Women’s Ceremony is represented by designs based on dancing tracks which can only be painted by the Pwerle or Kemarre owners. They are painted on the women’s bodies before ceremony is performed.

Galya lives with her sisters at Irrultja (Urultja) a small community settlement at Utopia 300kms north-east of Alice Springs. She produces highly collectable and desirable artworks which are eagerly sought by collectors and are held in galleries nationally and internationally.

Along with their extended family of renowned artists, Barbara Weir, Aileen and Betty Mpetyane, these Elder ladies Molly, Emily and Gayla Pwerle are all producing highly collectable and desirable artworks.

Artwork Description

Drawing on the same Dreamings as her sisters (Minnie (dscd), Emily and Molly), Galya paints the seeds of grasses, the bush tomato and the wild orange (which is depicted in this painting in the second layer).

Women’s Ceremony (awelye) is represented by designs based on dancing tracks made in the sand (painted in the first layer of the artwork in this case). These same designs are painted on the women’s bodies before ceremony is performed.
