Balnhdhurr – A Lasting Impression

Sunday 24th June, 2018 - Saturday 8th September, 2018

In a remote corner of Arnhem Land sits Yirrkala Print Space, where, for over twenty years, the ancient craft of printmaking has not only survived, but prospered.

With works from 50 artists, this exhibition includes historically significant prints. The Berndt Etchings series talks about the Berndt Crayon Drawings of Yirrkala, produced by the artists’ predecessors in 1947, while String Figure Prints are a response to another archaeological collection from 1948. P

Some pieces reveal the impact the introduction of bright acrylics had on artists, which allowed them to explore a whole way of storytelling in a joyous explosion of colour and expression.

Held in and around the port, the festival embraces our maritime and bush heritage and celebrates with a huge party and fireworks on the Saturday night.
