Free exhibition and workshops by a famous Indigenous artist

A free exhibition of Jimmy Pike's iconic art works is currently touring Australia. The Desert Psychedelic Exhibition will visit Bribie Island Seaside Museum from Friday, March 1 - Sunday, April 28, 2013.


Jimmy Pike (1940 - 2002) was born in Western Australia's Great Sandy Desert, grew up in a traditional Walmajarri family and eventually found himself in Fremantle Prison, where he joined an art class. He was already a famous artist by the time he left prison and his work flourished during the Indigenous Cultural Renaissance of the 1980s. His vibrant works are now highly cherished and grace many National and International art galleries.


Visit the Desert Psychedelic Exhibition to witness first hand the late Jimmy Pike's original prints, textile lengths and garments, or maybe join one of the following amazing workshops. There will also be a range of free self paced activities to participate in, such as making friend ship bracelets, coloring in activity sheets and designing your own fashion piece.
