Aboriginal exhibition Barney Ellaga

Barney Ellaga was a senior Aboriginal law man and until his recent passing in late 2015 he was the last remaining song man of the Alawa people. Barney had intimate knowledge of his traditional homelands and it is this subject, Alawa Country, which his work most represents.

The Aboriginal community of Ngukurr (place of stones) is located on the Roper River in Southeast Arnhem Land and is known for it’s vibrant artistic community, distinct style and exuberant use of colour. Paintings from this area portray the diverse landscape of Ngukurr and culturally significant sites of Alawa country.
