Open roads to Bana Yirriji Art

Artists from Bana Yirriji Art Centre have used the recent wet season to create new works and collect materials, ready to receive hundreds of visitors once the roads re-open during the dry season.

Based in Wujal Wujal, the art centre is housed in an eco designed building, boasting its own gallery and retail area.

In May, Bana Yirriji Art launched an exhibition of works at Natures Power House, located in the beautiful botanic gardens in Cooktown. The Wujal Wujal artists have also been busy producing new textile and jewellery designs for the upcoming art fair season. The artists worked with Hannah Parker to design 2m fabric lengths, and Bev Dunkley to create seed based jewellery pieces. Shannon Brett and Lynelle Flinder have also worked with the artist to create a new silk fabric collection.
