Art Centres are an integral part of each community

The art centres visited on an Aboriginal Art Connections experience are all aboriginal owned and operated, ensuring that all proceeds from the sale of art works provide a direct benefit to the artists and the communities.

These centres are an integral part of each community, providing the means for local artists to have their work distributed to galleries and collectors world wide. Many are also an artistic hub in the community, with artists sharing ochres, tools and resources, or just coming together socially.

Warmun Art Center

Warmun Art Centre celebrates the expression of Gija culture through the arts. The Art Centre was established in 1998 by leading artists of the Warmun (Turkey Creek) community. The Centre is wholly owned and managed by the Warmun artist group, and 100% of income from sales is returned back to the community.

The Warmun Art Centre provides artists with economic independence and the opportunity to share their Gija culture and country with visitors. Warmun Art Centre operates an artists’ studio and gallery space that is owned and governed by the Gija artists. Because of this, buyers can be assured of ethical sales. Warmun Art’s architect-designed exhibition space opened in 2007 displays paintings, etchings, books and cards. Viewing the display of Warmun’s artistic and cultural diversity creates an invaluable experience for visitors.

Warmun Art Centre is located amid the spectacular scenery of the East Kimberley, Western Australia. The Centre is located in the Warmun (Turkey Creek) Community, halfway between Halls Creek and Kununurra, along the Great Northern Highway. The centre is open from Monday to Friday 9 am till 4pm.

Entry to Warmun Art Centre:
A verbal permit is required to enter the Warmun (Turkey Creek) Community.

Featured Art Tour

This year we have designed a comprehensive tour of Arnhem Land, focusing not only on the art centres, but we have also included immersive environmental events. A spectacular time of year, after the wet season has abated, the drier air ensures comfort whilst the land is still lush and green.

The customised trip will give you the opportunity to walk around the community environs and engage with the local residents. In particular you will meet the artists, often the artist’s family and certainly the arts workers. On occasion we havebeen offered spontaneous invitations to visit the artist’s homes and camps, the chance to visit the local school, learn more about medicinal botany, Yolngu law, interpret rock art or do some night fishing. Overall the style and pace of the trip is to give those interested in Top End Indigenous Australian art and culture an opportunity to fulfil their curiosity in a real time way.

Make no mistake; this trip cannot be achieved without the expertise of the Aboriginal Art Connections team with many years of collective experience and enthusiasm for Northern Australia. Wewill provide a comfortable trip and an extraordinary experience.

The service you can expect from the team at Aboriginal Art Connections is exemplary. Please be aware that accessing these remote communities in Arnhem land is restricted, so we make all the applications on your behalf to clear entry, prepare your lodgings, ensure meals are hearty and fulfilling, down to the fragrant fresh coffee for morning and afternoon tea always in a scenic let’s just stop and take it in location.

As your accompanying indigenous art specialist I am on board to facilitate your growing knowledge of the art forms of the region, such the stylistic shifts from eastern to western Arnhem land, to introducing specific artists work to you, and being that calm third party when required to help you make decisions with confidence when on the ground.
