Ruby Morton Kngwarreye
Ruby has featured in many group exhibitions since beginning her artistic career in 1977. The oldest daughter of fellow Utopian artist Mary Morton Kemarre, Ruby participated in batik workshops that were held in Utopia from 1977 to 1987 with her mother and younger siblings. Her work is represented in the Holmes á Court Collection which was exhibited extensively within Australia and abroad. Like most other batik artists living in Utopia, Ruby made the transition to painting in the summer of 1988-9 as part of CAAMA’s ‘The First works on Canvas, a Summer Project’.
