Balgo artists from Warlayirti exhibited at Japingka Gallery in 1999 to celebrate the opening of the new art centre which was recently completed in the community. Dancers, singers, elders and artists attended the event and performed part of the ceremony for the Luurnpa Kingfisher Dreaming story that is crosses through the location of the art centre.

Warlayirti Artists has been operating since 1987, one of the first desert art centres to open in Western Australia. This followed the successful exhibition of Balgo artists at the Art Gallery of Western Australia, ‘Art from the Great Sandy Desert’ curated by Michael O’Ferrell. The art and culture centre successfully serves 200 Aboriginal artists from Wirrimanu (Balgo), Mulan and Kururrrungku (Billiluna).

Balgo has established a distinctive style of desert artwork, being amongst the first group of desert artists to embrace a broad palette of colours. Its leading artists over the years have included Eubena Nampitjin, Susie Bootja Bootja, Lucy Yukenbarri, Bai Bai Napangati, Helicopter Tjungurrayi, Boxer Milner, Sunfly Tjampitjin and Brandy Tjungurrayi amongst many others. The artists come from a wide range of desert language groups including Kukatja, Warlpiri, Walmajarri, Wangkatjungka, Pintupi and Ngardi.

This exhibition ‘Wirrimanu Balgo Artists’ celebrates the ongoing works of Warlayirti Artists 20 years on from the memorable celebrations that marked the opening of thier prestigious art centre. The exhibition runs through out November and December at Japingka.
