It tells the creation time story, using synthetic polymer paint on a linen surface. Anumara means caterpillar and Tjukurpa refers to the creation period. Hector said: This painting tells a story about kinship groups represented in the Central Desert region of Australia. The caterpillars travelled far and wide and met in one resting place and the women danced in the fire and gave the men a ceremonial stick. Hectors work has been exhibited extensively throughout Australia and abroad. He has held both solo and group exhibitions and in 2010 was named as one of Australias 50 most collectable artists by Art Collector magazine. Local Telstra Country Wide Area general manager Brian OKeefe said it was encouraging to see indigenous artists from the Northern Territory recognised for their artistic talent. The 28th National Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art Award exhibition opens, and award presentations will be made, on Thursday 11 August 2011. Rate rise in your letterbox Erin Jones ALICE Springs residents have been hit by a rate rise. Rate notices showing a rise of 5.8 per cent began arriving in the towns letterboxes this week. The Alice Springs Town C o u n c i l f l a g g e d t h e changed rates in the 2011-15 Municipal Plan earlier this year. Mayor Damien Ryan said: Its not an easy thing to sell. The rates situation happens every year and you have an amount of money you need, to provide the services that are run in town. To provide those services we need 5.8 per cent more than what we had last year. The Municipal Plan showed extra expenditure for councils pathways program, planting materials and the establishment of two more council rangers. Total expenditure is $25.4 million, with $18.9 million coming from rates and annual charges. The opening of the new Aquatic and Leisure Centre and its ongoing costs also adds to the rate rise. The council is offering an incentive for residents to pay their rates early. If paid in full by September 2, residents go in the Early Bird Draw and could win a rates refund or a free pass to the landfill. Rate instalments are due on September 2, November 4 this year and February 3 and April 13 next year.
