The Call from Papunya

Two major artists, Michael Nelson Jagamara and Imants Tillers, were ‘re-united’ in 2001 at FireWorks Gallery’s Winn Street Studios in Fortitude Valley; in the month of July they completed their first collaborative work Nature Speaks Y / Confused Possum. Since then an additional twenty paintings have been completed, of which five will form the centrepiece of this exhibition The Call from Papunya.

Vincent Serico: Some People are Stories to Tour Queensland

Vincent Serico: Some people are stories has received Playing Queensland touring funding through Arts Queensland and will be touring throughout regional Queensland in partnership between FireWorks Gallery and Museums and Galleries Queensland (M&G QLD).

Vincent’s art aims to acknowledge Aboriginal existence in a way that gives comfort, while recognising past pain, sorrow, longing and loss, and leaving a trace of them in the hearts of others. Vincent always wanted to tour his work, he wanted to share his stories to the widest possible audience.

The Range at FireWorks Gallery!

In our 25th year as a commercial gallery and artists’ hub we are perpetually looking forward to exciting projects and exhibitions. The depth in our stockroom is astonishing, with not only hundreds of stretched and rolled paintings but works on paper, sculptures, rugs and ceramics in every corner!
