Minyma Kutjara Wingellina is the debut solo exhibition for Pitjantjatjara artist Tjariya Stanley. The show will display Stanley's new paintings and ceramics and the opening will be attended by the artist, her daughter Renita, and Julian Green, manager of Ernabella Arts in South Australia.

In this new body of work, Stanley uses designs of the landscape such as tjukula (rockholes) and flowers to depict the dreaming of Minyma Kutjara Wingellina, the story of two sisters on their journey through Stanley’s country of Wingellina and the sacred ceremonial sites that they pass through. Stanley has exhibited widely in group exhibitions in Australia and overseas, and her work features in several prominent collections including the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra, Queen Victoria Museum & Art Gallery in Tasmania, and Artbank.
