Our Art Centre

Nganampa Art Centre

The art centre takes its name from the maku (witchetty grub) found in the roots of the Acacia Kempeana. The Maku Tjukurpa (witchetty grub songline) is a significant story from this area. As with other art centres, Mimili Maku Arts is an Aboriginal-owned and governed arts business.

The art centre involves men and women, young people and old people from the community and four surrounding homelands of Perentie Bore, Wanmara, Blue Hills and Sandy Bore.

Exhibited works by Mimili Maku artists attract attention with their traditional imagery, symbols and narrative combined with untainted abstract and distinctive application of colour. The strong abstract variations and complex depictions of country, tjukurpa and contemporary stories by artists at Mimili Maku generate unmatched interest from collectors nationally and overseas.
