  • "Trade Desert Song presents significant desert narrative paintings by women artists from across the Western and Central Desert regions. The theme of the works revolves around the function of song existing at the core of the stories and their meanings. These works come from country where song brings forth the identity of the site and of the singer. Amongst the twenty major artists exhibiting are Esther Giles Nampitjinpa, Lorna Ward Napanangka, Walangkura Napanangka, Yinarupa Gibson Nangala, Ningura Napurrula, Eileen Napaltjarri, Minnie Pwerle and Pantjiti Mary McLean.... A long association between Japingka Gallery and the family of Jimmy Pike is celebrated with an exhibition of works by Edgar Pike, brother to Jimmy, and Francine Steele, Edgar's daughter. The exhibition features paintings, silkscreen prints, etchings and silk scarves. Jimmy Pike's first drawings and limited edition prints were made in Fremantle in the early 1980s, while Edgar and Francine work in the small Kimberley community of Ngumpan. Together their story covers the journey of their clan from the Great Sandy Desert north to the cattle station country of the Fitzroy Valley..." [Publisher's website]
