Talapi has its final exhibition for the year leading up to Christmas. Chronicles from days gone by refers  works on paper from Maruku artists that document significant historical events and daily life in the APY lands. There are new limited edition prints from Iwantja artists and Mimili from Basil Hall editions. Yarrenyty Arltere artists  continue to develop soft sculpture from new artists and Hermannsburg Potters have contributed with small terracotta pots including cowboys chooks and other creatures. Most of these works are of modest size  and perfect for Christmas gifts but there are also spectacular paintings from  the central desert region to delight.
