NYAPARU (WILLIAM) GARDINER

Free Event

Presented by Salon Art Projects in association with Spinifex Hill Studios

This extraordinary exhibition is a physical record of the incredible life of the late artist, storyteller and language worker Nyaparu (William) Gardiner.

For many years Nyaparu recorded and wrote Nyangumarta language and stories. He painted about his childhood in the 1940s before the Pilbara Aboriginal strike of 1946, as well as his work on pastoral stations throughout the Pilbara and the Kimberley. For the last few years of his life Nyaparu lived in Port Hedland, his childhood home.
