|8 August 2013 | The seventh Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair opens tomorrow. The fair will have stands from over 40 art centres from across the country, giving the public and the arts industry the chance to purchase artwork by emerging and establishing artists directly from these often-remote Indigenous-owned enterprises. Together, the centres participating in the fair represent over 1,800 artists.|
|The fair also provides a space for visitors to meet the artists and to learn from a variety of different cultural groups from across Australia. The program includes workshops, art making demonstrations and performances. |
There will also be book launches, public forums, and a free Darwin gallery tour. To view the full public program, click here.
