Cungelella Art Sisters Open Pop-Up Boutique in Mount Isa | The Northwest Star



news, local news,

The four talented Mount Isa sisters who market their work under the name Cungelella Art have set up a temporary pop-up shop in town. Cungelella Art is the brainchild of Kalkadoon artist Glenda McCulloch and her three sisters Jaunita Doyle, Dale Bruce and Cheryl Perez with contributions from their mother and father. Their fabulous work is now on display – and for sale – in a pop-up store on Simpson St next to Best N Less and will be there until the end of Rodeo Week. The sisters were planning to set up the pop-up store around this time last year, but Covid ended those plans, but they’re now up and running. Jaunita Doyle said DATSIP (Department of Elderly, Disabled People’s Services, and Aboriginal-Torres Strait Islander Partnerships) led the way for them. “It’s for all native artists, so if someone has paintings, they can drop them off and we can sell them for them,” Ms. Doyle said. But most of the work is by the Four Sisters, many of which were on display recently during their exhibition at the Mount Isa Art Gallery in Outback at Isa. In addition to art, they also feature earrings, mugs, jewelry, and other artifacts. Jaunita said the four sisters drew inspiration for their art from their country. “The colors of the earth, the beautiful sunsets and the minerals, the granites and the quartz, all those beautiful colors that you see when you are in the countryside,” she said. Beginning a few years ago at the back of Glenda’s house in Mount Isa, Cungelella’s designs can now be seen across the world. Following a collaboration with the fashion label Deadly Denim Cungelella, Art creations make their appearance on the catwalk for fashion week in New York. Deadly Denim and its owner, Perth fashion designer Rebecca Rickard, showcased her work in the Big Apple in an exhibit titled “Our Country” featuring artwork by Glenda. They also collaborated with vegan shoes made by Twoob and with the founder of global brand Kind Is Cool, Amber Wilkinson, to create designs for children’s t-shirts. The pop-up show is open Monday through Friday, this week and next, as well as Saturday morning August 7. .
