Papunya Tula Community : The collective, originally entirely Aboriginal Australian men, formed in 1972. They derived the name tula from a small hill near Papunya, a Honey Ant Dreaming site. A few women, notably Pansy Napangardi, began to paint for the company in the late 1980s. It was not until 1994 that women generally began to participate. The initial participation was helping their husbands with the boaders of her paintings through this Collaboration the Master would taught to apprentice to paint. For Papunya this period was from 1971-1980 and included at least 24 Original Shareholders. It was in the late 1980’s that Aboriginal people of Utopia started to put acrylic paint on canvas. This followed a very successful decade of working with batik, several years after the Papunya art movement began which put Utopia on the map, so to speak. Utopia women in particular are known as the leaders in female aboriginal art as well as their colourful contemporary appeal.
