Darwin Art Fair Workshop with Marie Abbott
Ngurratjuta is pleased to report that the workshop with watercolour artist Marie Abbott held during the Darwin Art Fair was a great success. It was great to catch up with Marie and engage her expertise. In Marie's words, '[art and culture is] where your heart is, where you belong. That's why you gotta teach the art with your grandkids or great grandkids, so they can know too.'
