About the Artist and Artwork
Artwork based on art by Betty Mpetyane Club.
Betty was involved with the Batik work at Utopia and has been painting for a long time. She is represented in the Holmes a Court Collection and her work is represented in the catalogue ‘Utopia – A Picture Story’.
Betty paints ‘My Mother’s Story’, awelye (women’s ceremonial body paint designs) for the ancestral dreamtime stories of the anemangkerr (bush melon or tomato) which belong to her mother’s country, Atnwengerrp, in the Utopia Region. Betty inherited the permission to paint the design by her mother, the late Minnie Pwerle.
Betty travelled to Adelaide with Julia Murray and Jenny Green and has painted for Rodney Gooch, DACOU Gallery Adelaide and Mbantua Gallery. Betty is sister to Barbara Weir.
