Summary
The 'Art Gang' (a work gang whose occupation is art work and related activities), as they are known locally and now more widely, emerged in 1995. They are supported and work professionally through the Lockhart River Community Art Centre. All of these artists are between 20 and 30 years old. Their main works are paintings on canvas and fine art prints. The best known of the Lockhart River artists include Rosella Namok, Samantha Hobson, Fiona Omeenyo, Silas Hobson and Adrian King. The Art Gang's work is a contemporary response to the environment, culture and traditions of this isolated Aboriginal Community. It expresses some of the realities of being Aboriginal and the strong influences of traditional culture and values in their world. They have developed their own forms of expression which are very different from the art of other parts of Australia
