Known as the ‘Grand Old Man of the Kimberley', Jack Dale (1920-2013) was a skilled bushman, highly respected elder and senior lawman. He came to painting late in life, developing a distinct style.
This exhibition brings to together a selection of large scale paintings of the immensely powerful Wandjina spirits, ghost-like figures with large eye and halos, which are responsible for the monsoonal rains in the Kimberley region of the End Top. In time with the wet season in the North, this 'gathering' of spirits (paintings) will surely impress the gallery visitor if not create a storm.
