One of the best Aboriginal Art Galleries in Melbourne, we’ve been showcasing artwork from the Central and Western Deserts and the Kimberley region for over twenty years and our current displays feature the talents of some of Australia’s most recognisable and collectable indigenous artists such as Minnie Pwerle, Anna Price Petyarre, Bessie Pitjara, Thomas Tjapaltjarri and Dorothy Napangardi.
While we do offer some of the best indigenous art Melbourne has available, as passionate art enthusiasts we not only want to bring you artwork from renowned artists, but we want to do all that we can to identify and support new and emerging talent. With this in mind, we’ve created an in-house studio for local artists with a very relaxed atmosphere, which is proving to be an extremely conducive and productive environment for creating some truly outstanding indigenous art.
What’s more, we have a long-standing and total commitment to providing top quality artwork to suit all tastes and budgets, so you’ll see that while the prices of our paintings are extremely competitive, we never ever compromise on quality.
Pay a visit to our spacious art gallery in Melbourne and you’ll see the range and high quality of our Aboriginal art for sale for yourself. Since 2004 we’ve made it our mission to find the very best artwork from the very best artists; artists who love to share their everyday life experiences with you, and who do so by recreating their ideas, dreams and visions through their meticulous artwork.
Over the last twenty years, we’ve become recognised locally, nationally and internationally for the scope and quality of our artwork, for our exhibitions, and for our passion for promoting and supporting indigenous Australian artists. When you visit our Aboriginal Art Gallery, not only will you get the chance to see examples of outstanding Aboriginal artwork, but you’ll also get to see the creative talents of some of our local artists. We usually have several artists in residence who are more than happy to allow you to watch them as they paint and answer any questions you may have about their paintings, their techniques and their background.
We also hold regular exhibitions to feature specific artists. Recently we’ve showcased the supreme talents of Anna Price Pityarra, whose artwork depicts several stories relating to her native land of Utopia; Betty Mbitjana, whose paintings are based on the designs used in body painting during the Alwelye ceremony; and Willy Tjungurrayi, whose instantly recognisable dotting style is acclaimed both nationally and internationally.
