'Women of Utopia' is an exhibition showcasing significant artworks by some of Australia’s most recognizable female Aboriginal artists from the Utopia region in Central Australia.

Women of Utopia is on display from 6th – 17th March at @14 Gallery, 14 Langridge St, Collingwood. The gallery is open 7 days a week from 11am until 6pm.

An Opening Event will be held on Saturday 9th March, from 2 - 4pm.

Approximately 230kms north east of Alice Springs in Central Australia, Utopia is the traditional land of the Alyawarre and Anmatyerre people. This region has been and still is home to some of Australia’s most distinguished female artistic talent.

Utopia has grown the genius of luminaries such as Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Gloria Petyarre, Minnie Pwerle, Kathleen Petyarre, Margaret Loy Pula and Polly Ngale. These women have been collected both nationally and internationally with Emily Kame Kngwarreye achieving the highest secondary auction price for any female Australian visual artist to date.

The work in the exhibition depicts the focus of cultural maintenance regarding country, food, traditional practices, law, and the complex social system to which they adhere.

The modern art movement in Utopia began in the late 1970s and it unearthed a community of extraordinary talent, with the women the driving force behind the art.

As a variety of tools and a broader palette became available, their natural curiosity and preparedness to experiment initiated a boldness in style and colour which.
