Unpretentious New Indigenous Art Gallery

for Sydney

Sydney's newest art gallery, galleryADG, officially opens in King Street, Newtown this week with a major exhibition by some of Australia's top Indigenous artists from Utopia, Papunya, Kintore and Kiwirrkura and promises to be "as unpretentious as possible".

"If youíve ever wanted to know more about Aboriginal art, you donít need to be afraid to ask. This is an unpretentious, friendly gallery where the directors support understanding, knowledge and education as much as the gentle promotion of Indigenous art, "says galleryADG's Sydney Director, Louise Haigh, whose family has owned and operated galleryADG in Canberra since 1989.

546 King Street is the first Sydney base for galleryADG (short for Aboriginal Dreamings Gallery). For the past 15 years, the gallery has enjoyed an enviable reputation in Canberra, making a valuable contribution to Australia's Indigenous cultures by showcasing art from remote Aboriginal communities across Australia. The gallery's expansion to Sydney is a chance for a new audience to discover the gallery's unique access to exciting and beautiful Indigenous treasures.

"We have paintings by many famous artists including Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Rover Thomas, and Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri," says Ms Haigh. "Works by these artists may come up for auction but it is becoming increasingly rare to find paintings by these artists in commercial galleries. We provide excellent documentation and paintings are sold with a Certificate of Authenticity."

"Our opening exhibition represents a wide range of paintings and styles. There are some extraordinary new works by Angelina Pwerle along with the popular Seven Sisters Dreaming by Gabriella Possum Nungurrayi and Leaves by Gloria Petyarre, who won the Wynne Prize for landscape painting at the Art Gallery of NSW in 1999," adds Ms Haigh.

Ms Haigh has promised Sydney's galleryADG, which will open seven days a week, will continue the directors' philosophy and be a welcoming place for Aboriginal art collectors and novices alike.

galleryADG offers everything from large paintings for corporate boardrooms, artworks for the home, gifts and caters to every budget. Its extensive art collection represents over 700 artists from all regions of Australia and includes desert dot paintings, bark paintings from Arnhem Land and ochre paintings from the Kimberley region. The gallery stocks a broad selection of paintings, craft, artefacts and artworks by many important artists including Billy Stockman Tjapaltjarri, Ada Bird Petyarre and Turkey Tolson Tjupurrula. Thereís also a superb and inspiring range of Australian art glass and contemporary jewellery.
