Crossing Country: Jimmy Pike and his Artline drawings Other events...
Join Dr John Stanton, Curatorial Director of the Berndt Museum, for a talk on the current exhibition - previously unseen works on paper by distinguished Walmajarri artist Jimmy Pike, c.1940 – 2002.

Pike is best known for his paintings in acrylics on canvas. He also produced a large number of felt-tip pen drawings on paper. Desert Designs reproduced some of these on fabric; others remained in sketchbooks and have not previously been seen. The works on display are a fraction of the collection held at the Berndt Museum. They were created between 1990 and 2000, in the heat and wind at Kurlku outstation, and at a table on the verandah at his home in Broome.

Dr Stanton will also talk about Pike’s upbringing in country to the far south of Fitzroy Crossing in the Kimberley – an area the Kardiya (white man) called the Great Sandy Desert, but to the Walmajarri was home and a good place to live, thanks to the Beings of the Jumangkarni (Dreamtime). A number of works in the exhibition focus on the activities of the Dreaming Beings at these places.

Free event.
