A new exhibition at Spinifex Hill Project Space will champion the work of three significant female Pilbara artists who have paved the way for first nations creatives. Dubbed Three of Us, the exhibition will showcase the artistic talents of Gloria, Nyangulya Katie Nalgood and Maggie Green. The exhibition follows Katie’s success at the prestigious 2021 Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Isalnder Art Awards for her work, Larmparn Jirriku Marnti. It also comes as Gloria receives acclaim for her work, Untitled, at the Salon des Refuses exhibition. Spinifex Hill Studio manager Sophia Constantine said she was excited for artists to share their distinctive style. “Despite the impact COVID-19 had on Gloria’s visits to the studio in 2020, she has returned to paint this year and has continued to grow in success,” she said. “Gloria continues to amaze the studio staff and artists with her distinctive signature style and wet on wet painting technique. “She is a delight to have in the space and we look forward to her weekly visits.” Nalgood has been painting with Spinifex Hill Studio daily since 2012. The artist said she liked to depict birds on the canvas, with a focus of rendering in paint the memories of birds in her childhood. “Birds are the first things we see, you know, when we wake up. See and hear,” she said. “You know us old people start and finish the day with the birds. “That’s everyday life between birds and humans, you know. That’s what I think about anyway.” The exhibition will open to the public September 30 and closes December 4.
