Wirnda Barna Artists
Wirnda Barna Artists is located on Badimaia country around 320 kms inland from Geraldton. Wirnda Barna services artists in the communities of Yalgoo, Mount Magnet, Sandstone, Cue, Meekatharra and Yulga Jinna.
The main gallery and production area is located in the old gold mining town of Mount Magnet. The artists of this region are close to many important cultural sites such as The Granites and significant rock painting at Walga Rock.
Artists create as individuals and work in many different styles but with a shared purpose of strengthening their connection to culture, country and the local economy.
“I like to work ‘both ways’ using designs that my Aunt Beryl has shown me. But I also want to try new ways of painting using more colours – like some younger city artists who go wild with colour and use lots of humour in their paintings.”
– Michael Mongoo, Meekatharra artist.
Wirnda Barna Artists is located on the corner of Naughton Street and Hepburn Street, Mount Magnet WA.
