It is an exciting time in Aboriginal art as the first generation of female artists begins to make way for the new. Standards are high and competition to stand out is intense for the next generation. As the Aboriginal art movement has matured, the well respected and well known founding generation of female artists has encouraged, and in some cases tutored, the following generation to tell their stories in compellingly new and different ways.
