DARWIN ABORIGINAL ART FAIR AND FASHION SHOW 2017

I have been attending Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair periodically since it's inception some 11 years ago and it just keeps getting bigger and better ! A not to be missed event on Darwin's jam packed social and events' calendar early August each year, the Art Fair showcases work from around 50 Art Centres. The diversity of work, be it painterly, sculptural, textiles or fashion is ever increasing and of amongst the most spectacular. So much to see and do in fabulous Darwin over August, but do not miss the Art Fair and Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Award finalists and winning art works showing at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory.
