The gallery is an important cultural center focused on the creation of authentic and high quality indigenous sculpture and fibre art. The art center has been in Aurukun for over fifty years,  providing artistic and commercial support for local artists. This artist, Roderick Yunkaporta, was interviewed while exhibiting his art at the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair.
