Kalumburu Mission Art Studio

Art Studio

With the enthusiastic efforts of the Kalumburu volunteers and under the watchful eye of David Forster, Philip Treacy, John and Lucia Taylor and Margaret O’Donnell have completed a fit-out of one of the original buildings at Kalumburu Mission. Previously utilised as living quarters for a brother and a priest, a radio/weather station, a museum and most recently an Op Shop the building has been revamped to begin life as an artist in residence centre for local Indigenous artists.

In consultation with traditional owner and artist, Kevin Waina, the building is providing space for local artists to work and display their creations to visitors to the Kalumburu Community. With plans by some artists to expand their creative talents to wood and slate etchings the centre has the potential to provide income for the artists and to become a point of inspiration for young budding Kalumburu artists.
