The 2022 exhibit was curated by Amanda Bell, Karen Morgan and Katelyn Whitehurst and centred around the theme Kaarla Koort-ak: Woonya, Moort, Boodja — Hearts on Fire: Love, Family, Country.
Noongar artist Swag Taylor’s piece Untitled Landscape won the top prize of the night — the Alcoa award — while Cassandra Bynder won the emerging art award for her piece Healing on Heart Country (Karlup Mabarn).
Taylor’s piece was bought by a Johnny Westwood and Robyn Hutchinson on the night.
