Christmas Cheer and a welcome to Hilary Crawford, the Manager of Bula Bula Arts, located in Ramingining in Arnhem Land, with the launch of an exhibition of stunning artefacts from this famous Art Centre, opened by Deputy Mayor of Leichhardt Council, Vera Ann Hannaford.

Ramingining was the setting for the films, ‘Ten Canoes’ and also ‘Charlie’s Country’.

Dilly bags, Fish Traps, Baskets and Sculptures on display together with photographs, video and examples of the various materials and dyes used in the process of creating these enduring crafts created from Pandanus and Bush String, and some unique and special carvings decorated with ochre and small paintings of Magpie Geese, Long Necked Turtles, Fish, and Flying Foxes.

The Three Bottles by Robyn Djunginy were in the String Theory Exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, which subsequently travelled to the Darwin Art Gallery and Museum and in regional centres.  They are now available for sale.  Robyn was the 2011 NAIDOC Artist of the Year and a Telstra Finalist for a beautiful free form fish trap – we have two included in our exhibition.
