Second collection - After the Rains
After the Rains - Magpie Goose's second collection - was released in the middle of a category 4 tropical cyclone (Marcus!!) which hit Darwin in March 2018! A fine entry into the world, for this eclectic collection of prints from across the Northern Territory!
The collection features designs created by Borroloola artists Nancy McDinny and Stewart Hoosan and Urapunga + Katherine artists Margaret and Rhonda Duncan. These designs are the final works created by artists during an August 2017 textiles design workshop in Katherine NT, facilitated by Tim Growcott + Magpie Goose.
The collection also features two designs from talented Kunwinjku artists from Injalak Arts. Marebu (woven mats), a collaborative effort from Priscilla Badari, Katra Nganjmirra and Silvia Badari; and Lambalk Kangun Mannguy (Sugar Glider Eating Flowers) by Graham Badari. Two Tiwi Designs prints complete the collection, Angelo Munkara's Yuwurli (mangrove worm) print, and Jock Puautjimi's Burial Sites design.
