Senior Mangkaja artist, Nada Rawlins, working on an etching plate during Basil’s recent workshop in Fitzroy Crossing. Nada was in a group of artists who came to Darwin in 1996 and made exquisite dry points at Northern Editions with Basil and Leon Stainer during the Kaltja/Business Conference that year. The hand is not quite as strong as it was on the zinc plate nearly 20 years ago, but the imagery is still there! Nada and the other artists attending, including Sonia Kurarra and Lisa Uhl, made a number of small colour etchings and silkscreen prints which will be printed at Basil Hall Editions in coming months.
