Formatted Abstract/Summary
Introduces art lovers to the art of a group of young Aboriginal artists from the Lockhart River Community in Northern Queensland - Australia's only youth-driven Aboriginal art initiative. This book demonstrates how these young artists have captured the history, community, and wilderness of their surroundings.

Our way: Contemporary Aboriginal art from Lockhart River documents the work of the Lockhart River Art Gang. Our Way celebrates a remarkable story of this group of 24 young artists from a remote Aboriginal community in Queensland's Cape York, several of whom have achieved national and international recognition.

Rosella Namok, Samantha Hobson and Fiona Omeenyo lead the movement with spectacular and diverse insights into country, culture and history. This publication features the fine art printmaking from the Art Gang's early years, along with major paintings.
