Bula'bula Arts Aboriginal Corporation has succesfully recruited a new Manager and a new Curator, as at the end of 2010.

The artists of Ramingining are renown for their disctinctive painting style and innovative, brightly coloured fibreworks, many of which are in major international and Australian public collecting institutions, as well as in stock at the Bula'bula Arts centre.

Many, but not all the works in stock, can be found on this website in the Gallery section. We hope you find something you like!
