Celebrations for ANKAAA`s 25th Anniversary
In November 2011 Northern Editions delivered a printmaking workshop to approximately 20 artists from across Northern Australia. The artists gathered at Adelaide River as part of the Association of Northern, Kimberley & Arnhem Aboriginal Artists (ANKAAA) annual AGM. Several of the artists worked on copperplate dry point etchings. Each image tells a story. These images and stories are an exciting part of the celebrations for the 25th anniversary of ANKAAA in 2012.
Exhibition – Big family continues
Showing August 7th - 31st Nan Giese Gallery, Building Orange 10 Charles Darwin University Campus, Casuarina
The prints are to be compiled together with 26 prints commissioned by ANKAAA in early 2011 to make a concertina artist book, ultimately comprising of approximately 34 prints by artists from the ANKAAA supported art centres and informal artists' groups (which include approximately 5000 member artists), as well as ANKAAA board members. The artists come from four areas spanning more than one million square kilometres across the Top End and encompassing the Kimberley, Tiwi Islands, Arnhem Land, and the Darwin and Katherine regions. The cover of this book is a specially commissioned screen printed image onto fabric by Djambawa Marawili AM, senior artist and Chairman of ANKAAA. His thoughtfully chosen story tells of the importance of sharing, and thus brings to the fore the relevance of artists collaborating together and sharing their knowledge and stories. The work of high profile artists such as Freddie Timms, Bobby Bununggurr, Thelma Dixon, and Regina Wilson will be included in the book, to name a few.
Exhibition - Maternal Lines
Showing 7th August - 28th September, Northern Editions Gallery, Building Orange 9 Charles Darwin University Campus, Casuarina

BEDE TUNGUTALUM IN COLLABORATION WITH NORTHERN EDITIONS
Showing 7th August - 28th September, Northern Editions Gallery, Building Orange 9 Charles Darwin University Campus, Casuarina.
Northern Editions has worked in collaboration with renowned Tiwi Islands artist Bede Tungutalum. Bede has worked at the Northern Editions workshop at Charles Darwin University campus and collaborate with its team of printers, on a Japanese style water based woodblock printmaking project.
