Warmun Art Centre

Garlaroony by Yvonne Martin


This painting is about the rainbow snake we call Garlaroony. In the old days the old people use this waterhole for drinking water when they were out hunting kangaroo and also to relax and have a rest and cook the kangaroos after a long hard day in the dry heat of the midday bush. This waterhole is about 30kms west of the Doon Doon community. To get there is only by 4WD.

Warmun Art Centre is owned and governed by Gija people with 100% of income returning to the community. The centre was established in 1998 by the late founding members of the contemporary painting movement in Warmun such as Rover Thomas, Queenie McKenzie, Madigan Thomas and Hector Jandany. These elders recognised and responded to the need for a community owned and controlled centre through which they could support, maintain and promote Gija art, language and culture.

Warmun Art is here to celebrate and encourage the expression of Gija culture through the arts, and to support the continued development of innovative contemporary art by both established and emerging Warmun artists.
