Michael Reid Southern Highlands is pleased to present a group show by the Artists of Ampilatwatja. This exhibition showcases landscape paintings of the fertile yet scorched land of Ampilatwatja, which is located 320 km north-east of Alice Springs. The artists have predominantly painted Arreth, which translates to strong bush medicine, a flower that flourishes in the region and holds significant cultural meaning. The land has provided and sustained the Alyawarr people for generations and Akwerlp Alpeyt Artna Arntetyew is a poignant reminder of the interconnectedness between plant, land, animal and people.
The Artists of Ampilatwatja Art Centre was established in 1999 and the work of the artists is recognisably distinct to the centre.
