Aboriginal artists from the Utopia region have been extremely successful and continue to produce distinctive works that are collected by people in Australia and all over the world.

The Utopia art movement began with mainly women doing batik work which later transferred to canvass.

These works displayed are a small example of the fine art produced in this region.

The artists continue to maintain their traditional culture and much of their paintings reflect the traditional body painting done during their ceremonies.  Other paintings reflect their traditional role as food gatherers and their respect for their country - some paintings relate to specific food types such as bush yams, bush medicine leaves or bush melons and plums.
