MANGKAJA ARTS (THE KIMBERLEY)

Located in the center of Fitzroy Crossing, Mangkaja Arts Resource Agency grew out of projects run through the Karrayili Adult Education Center, which provided space for the cultural exchange of stories through learning and bush trips.

Taking its name Mangkaja, meaning wet weather spinifex shelter, the current space has evolved to provide a studio working space and gallery.

Work from Mangkaja artists often exhibit a broad, loose description of country, yielding contemporary forms such as the linear work of Lisa Uhl and the bold pink and green palette of Dolly Snell.
