Evelyn Malgil - Untitled

$1,458

Evelyn Malgil was born in Derby in 1965 and moved to Warmun at age 10. She attended high school in the town of her birth and then returned to Warmun, spending a period of time on Bedford Downs cattle station with her husband Norman. Evelyn cooked while Norman was the head stockman. Bedford Downs Station is located southwest of Warmun Community, and is Norman’s traditional country. Following her return, Evelyn has remained in Warmun were she now lives with her five children and grandchildren, painting her Country. She also works at the Warmun Art Centre Gallery as a casual assistant.

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.
