Alcaston Gallery, in conjunction with Desart, Alice Springs, is proud to present our third exhibition of new photographic prints from the Annual Desart Art Worker Photography Prize, December 2014.

Please join the gallery to meet BRENDA DOUGLAS from Tjala Arts, SA, winner of the third annual Desart Art Worker Photography Prize. Brenda will be accompanied by Pamela Hogan from Papulankutja Artists, NT and Marlene Chisholm, Art Worker Program Coordinator - Desart.

Initiated in 2011, the Desart Art Worker Photography Prize was established to support art workers throughout central Australia with training to develop their photographic skills, as well as providing a platform through which to convey their unique experiences of culture, community and country.

The 2014 first prize winner was Brenda Douglas, with her work Ngayuku mamangku witira kanyini tjala kinara pakany tjanka (My father holding Honey ants when the moon is rising). The prize was judged by Franchesca Cubillo, Senior Curator of Indigenous Art, National Gallery of Australia, and artists Tuppy Goodwin and Narelle Holland. An exhibition of the photographs was initially held at Tangentyere Gallery in Alice Springs in 2014 and curated by Desart arts workers.
