2023 marks the 20th year of the Gapaṉ Gallery at the Garma Festival.
This t-shirt features the hand print of print maker Bitharr Maymuru covered in Gapaṉ (white clay).
The main event for our print space each year is the Gapan Gallery held out at the Garma Festival in August. In a dell of stringy bark trees an outdoor gallery is created by clearing the forest floor, covering it with white sand, painting the trees in gapan – the local white clay – and hanging the framed prints in the trees. This annual exhibition is the primary focus for our printmakers and artists and the studio is almost on a daily basis making and editioning work. A theme naturally develops between the festivals and focuses the print space.
