Devil’s Marbles, 1977 by Myrtle Noske 60 x91cm oil on canvas

We have seven artists confirmed. Please come and listen to them share their art journey and wherever else our informal chat takes us!

Above is the work Devil’s Marbles acquired from our 1977 NT Art Award exhibition from founding member Myrtle Noske (nee Johannsen). Myrtle was born in a different era at Deep Well Station in 1926. Following art studies in Melbourne post WWII she returned to Central Australia to pursue an extremely active artistic career winning many Territory-wide awards. Her meticulous approach to her subject (evidenced above) earned Myrtle many commissions. ¬†Myrtle served as our president for twelve years. She was the art tutor at the Alice Springs Community College (now campus of Darwin University) for nine years. We are proud to have Myrtle as one of our founding members and so happy that she could join us for the exhibition’s Opening last Friday night.

Hoping to see you! Enquires to Dugald on 0403 095 909

Need some motivation? Can we recommend that you listen to the ABC Local Radio interview that will describe the place that CAAS has played in the art scene in both Central Australia and beyond! Link here
