This is a happy place for us. Always walking with our feet around and around and around.
Short Street Gallery, Broome invites you to experience our happy place walking through the with desert icons Molly and Samuel Miller, Nyanu Watson, and emerging Ninuku artist Selinda Davidson as they tell stories on canvas and glass from their lives travelling the colourful hills, creeks, campfires, of Wakapukultjara, Waltijara, and Mutinka homelands on the three Way Border of South Australia, Western Australia, and Northern Territory.
Short Street Gallery's exhibition schedule traverses the diverse styles of the numerous cultures that make up Australia, Each year Short Street showcases the best Australian artists whose work is often informed from a rich Indigenous history, from artists still actively living traditional Aboriginal law and culture.
