Booker-Lowe Gallery presents “Whose Business Is It? Men’s and Women’s Paintings of Traditional Dreamings from Warlpiri Country and Beyond,” opening reception on Saturday, May 4th, 2-5 pm. In traditional Aboriginal culture, "business" or "law" -- the rules by which people live -- are strictly segregated by gender, with centuries of tradition dictating relationships within families, with members of the community, even with the land itself. Whose Business Is It? will feature paintings by Warlpiri men, who create detailed patterns representing complex connections with ancestral country. We are equally thrilled to showcase new paintings by Warlpiri women, whose bold patterns evoke their rugged desert homelands, and whose vibrant colors reflect the brilliant hues of land and sky. In addition to the opening reception the gallery will be open 11 am - 4 pm, Wednesday, May 8th through Saturday, May 11th. After May 11th, the gallery will be open 11 am - 4 pm, Wednesdays through Fridays, and by appointment.
