Camel Camp Artists at The Red Gum Art Shed 2016

Artists Angeline Pwerle Ngala, Gladdy Kemarre and Elizabeth Mbjantua from Camel Camp, Utopia have spent the week working on their canvases at Red Gum’s Art Shed.

Now that the sting has gone from our extraordinarily hot summer and the summer ceremonies are over, the Senior women from Camel Camp (30kms north of Red Gum) are ready to paint again. The women, regular visitors to the Red Gum Art Store are thrilled to get back to work.
