The Laverton Aboriginal Art Gallery exhibits and sells art works and artefacts by local artists and artists from several Art Centres in remote communities in the Ngaanyatjarra Lands and Western Desert area which neighbours the Shire of Laverton.
Most of the Laverton artists and those working through these centres are connected, with artists often travelling back to stay with family in these communities and conversely people from these communities coming to stay in Laverton for extended periods.
For most of the artists the opportunity to paint and sell their artworks provides a way of not only expressing and sharing their culture and stories, but also a way of earning some extra income.
