Comment on Ngurratjuta artists are the new owners of the Desert Park gift shop by Leigh Childs.

Went out today and the gift shop looks really good. The art works are beautifully presented and displayed. I like the idea that the subject matter of the majority of paintings, in the Namatjira landscape style, is just there, just out the door.
And how wonderful for artists to be actually there painting, in a sympathetic public space. This has been sadly lacking in Alice Springs. Our publicly funded art gallery has consistently failed our Indigenous artists and tourists who come to see a bit more than just a finished canvas.
Congratulations to Iris and her team.
