Gloria Tamerre Petyarre

Gloria first became known as an artist for her contributions to Utopia Batik Exhibition which toured Australia and overseas from 1977 to 1987. She began using acrylic paint on canvas in 1988, because it gave her greater freedom of expression and better control over the results. In 1990 she travelled with the exhibition “Utopia: A Picture Story” to Dublin, London, Thailand and India. In 1999 she won the Wynne Prize for landscapes of the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Her first solo show was in 1991 and since then has had many exhibitions including New York and London.
