“Tjukurba” is translated from Matu to mean “Dreaming”. The gallery provides local artists with the space to dream and embrace creativity.
The Tjukurba Art Gallery is an Aboriginal art gallery in Wiluna, at the start of the Canning Stock Route. It is located within the Canning-Gunbarrel Discovery Centre and provides a rich authentic experience where you have the opportunity to personally meet and chat with artists painting on location in the gallery, who still live a semi traditional lifestyle.
The gallery combines professional and contemporary exhibition spaces with the beautiful historical features of the original, heritage-listed building. Situated on Scotia Street, the gallery has now grown into an important part of the community and displays a wonderful selection of paintings, all locally produced by the Birriliburu, the clan of Martu people specific to this region.
