The Art and Life of Dorothy Napangardi - 2020 Retrospective

Japingka Gallery welcomes you to this very special retrospective exhibition for Dorothy Napangardi (1952- 2013) . The exhibition shows the artist’s journey towards the refined style of the later Mina Mina paintings that established her career as an outstanding artist.

The earliest work dates back to 1997 and we see the first aspects of the Mina Mina story painted between 1998 and 2001. From these early compositions we see the structural elements that are transformed into large visions of Mina Mina ceremonial site. The artist develops and reworks the subject in paintings spanning the years 2003 to 2009. In 2002-2003 the artist’s work was presented at the Museum of Contemporary Art Sydney in an exhibition titled Dancing Up Country.

The exhibition honours the life and art of Dorothy Napangardi. The first such exhibition was held at Seattle Art Museum in 2018. This exhibition is presented with the support of Roslyn Premont of Gallery Gondwana, whose long association and promotion of Dorothy’s artwork has given so much to this story and to this tribute exhibition.

After the earlier health restrictions, we are now pleased to bring you this wonderful exhibition. Opening is on Friday 18th September at 6.30pm

Opening night visitor numbers are limited – reserve a ticket on Eventbrite or contact the gallery
