Title : ANKA Meeting in Balgo
Size/Medium : 1500 x 750mm: acrylic on linen Painting
The ANKA mob visited Balgo, they came from all over the Kimberley to talk up for their Art Centres. The old people wanted to show friends and family from all over the Country around Wirrimanu (Balgo). We went to Old Mission, where the Elders grew up, we went to Old Man Rock, where the church that still stands in Balgo got it’s stone. Helicopter told stories about working at the rock. We visited Kunawarawara rockhole, but it was all dried up. Last we went up on a hill and looked out over the ancient rivers of the Luurnpa Tjukurrpa (creation story). We had such a good week showing everyone our Art Centre and community.
