Lockhart River Artists
The Artists at the Lockhart River Arts Centre create a contemporary response to the environment, culture and traditions of this isolated Aboriginal Community through their art work.
Their art expresses some of the realities of being Indigenous and the strong influences of traditional culture and values in their world. The artists have developed their own forms of expression which are very different from the art of central Australia and other parts of Australia. The art from Lockhart River promotes the identity of Aboriginal people in contemporary Australian culture and is unique to Lockhart River Arts Centre.
Currently several artists come into the arts centre daily to create their work and develop their careers as artists. And there are many others who come in on an ad-hoc basis painting when they feel like it.
