The gallerys business manager, Sharon Mitchell, says the artists drew much of their inspiration from the Ngukurr region. Mrs Mitchell says artworks boast vibrant, exuberant colours and a sense of connection to the land, which will be especially poignant for anyone from central and northern Australia. This style of art is highly reflective of the landscape as seen by the Aboriginal people, especially their ties to the land, the landscape and the changing season, Mrs Mitchell says. The exhibition features pieces by Eastern Arnhem Land artists Gertie Huddleston, Angelina George and Barney Ellaga, all of whom have participated in the Telstra Aboriginal art awards. Some of all sales is donated to the Central Australian RSPCA Animal Shelter. The exhibition runs until November 26. Visit:www.mukmuk.com Dose of genuine US funk Charles Walker THERE will be no better time than next Wednesday to approach the bar at Darwins Railway Club and order a whiskey. A seven-piece funk band direct from Tennessee the American state famous for its coreshaking liquid spirits and recording studios will perform one show only at the club on November 23. The Dynamites, featuring Charles Walker, are in Australia to play at the popular Woodford, Mullumbimby and Queenscliff music festivals but they couldnt resist the appeal of visiting and entertaining in the tropics. Event manager James Gough said it was the chance to see one of the best bands in the world up close and personal. The Dynamites and their soul-shouting frontman Charles Walker possess true quality of musicianship, he said. Theyre the real deal, a real funk, soul band. Tickets are limited. $37.50.

Territory Administrator Sally Thomas will officially declare the festival open at Happy Yess this afternoon. Those attending the launch will have the chance to meet and mingle with some of the Territorys gay, lesbian, transgender, bisexual and queer (GLBTQ) community and DPF committee members and volunteers. The launch will mark the beginning of DPF, which includes 15 free and ticketed events over nine days. The affair is a cultural celebration of the GLBTQ community in the NT and aims to promote equality and diversity by showcasing local talent, art, artists, community spirit and lifestyles. This years DPF events range from art exhibitions to barefoot bowls, a sunset cruise, free family day picnic, dance parties and shows. A star-studded line-up of local, national and foreign guests and performers will feature at the affair, providing an overall experience that organisers promise will be as electrifying as Top End wet season storms. The festival launch kicks off at Darwins Happy Yess from 4.30 -7.30pm today.
