Mimi Aboriginal Art and Craft gallery
The newly upgraded Mimi Aboriginal Art and Craft gallery is now open in Katherine.
The first gallery upgrade included in the $30 million investment into Katherine, Tennant Creek and Arnhem Land through the Territory Arts Trail Extension Program is now complete. The Aboriginal owned not-for-profit, Mimi Aboriginal Art and Craft gallery, is officially open to the public after undergoing a $3 million renovation. The upgrades were designed by Troppo Architects and constructed by Katherine company, NJ Homes, who together captured the vision of Mimi Ngarrdalingi Aboriginal Corporation Board members, staff and member artists.
The gallery provides improved facilities and additional outdoor spaces to enhance the audience and visitor experience and to support engagement with authentic Aboriginal art and culture. The gallery entrance includes a sheltered and secure deck area made from Gumatj stringy-bark timber from Arnhem Land, and large sliding screens featuring stunning designs of Mimi spirits by local artist, Mr John Dewar.
