EARLY DAYS: Paintings from central & western desert art centres, 2001-2007

The art market for the desert art centres has changed significantly in the past 15 years. It’s become increasingly more sophisticated as the profile of centres and key artists have risen, and with that recognition, the exhibition demands placed on art centres.

It is timely to reflect on just how far the industry has travelled and how widely known these community based art centres now are. The majority of the art centres featured here were in their early days when these selected works were painted.
