New Featued Section at Aboriginal Art

Hi Aboriginal Art enthusiasts, is introducing a new featured section called Spotlight on an Aboriginal Art Gallery. We will be reviewing a new gallery every few weeks with details on who they are, where they are located, and what makes them unique in the industry. There are many great galleries out there that provide exceptional service to the industry and support Aboriginal Artists and their communities enormously.

Much of the work done by these galleries and the people behind them goes largely unnoticed and unrecognised. As well as providing you with an insiders perspective on a particular gallery, as well as another option to view and purchase Aboriginal Art, we want to highlight the fantastic work done by these galleries that you might not normally hear about.

So keep an eye out for our regular "Spotlight on an Aboriginal Art gallery" articles. The first one is already online here now. Just look down :)

Bye for now

Spotlight on an Aboriginal Art Gallery

Walkabout Fine Art Gallery

The Walkabout Fine Art Gallery is located in the San Francisco Bay Area in the United States. Walkabout is an Australian owned and managed gallery and specialises in bringing quality paintings by Australian aborigines to the market at affordable prices whilst promoting Aboriginal Art to the whole of North America.

Just like the Aborigines, Walkabout Gallery is also a nomad. They will be hosting a number of short term gallery openings of contemporary Australian aboriginal art in cities throughout North America.

Walkabout also specialises in supplying U.S. Based Galleries and Interior Design Firms with Aboriginal Art at wholesale prices.

In addition to their U.S. stock, Walkabout has over 2000 paintings available in Australia that can be delivered to America within 3 weeks.

One of the aspects of Walkabout that i really like is for a gallery located on the other side of the planet, the owners travel back home to select artworks by traveling throughout outback Australia. They visit artists, galleries and remote communities to select the finest artworks. They also pay for all the artworks up front providing the artists with a direct income and the communities with instant support. A major plus!

One of the really unique features about this gallery is that if you are unsure about the suitability of a particular artwork, they will rent it you for a short period! That is something i really like!

Taking that one step further, all Walkabout's paintings are available for either sale or lease! Another unique feature i really like that gives customers the ultimate in choice.

Walkabout's website has a large range of artworks to view in 4 different categories. The site is cleanly laid out and also features information on many of Australia's leading Aboriginal Artists.

Many people feel more comfortable dealing with businesses based in the country they live in so for those of you living in the U.S., those that do business there, or those of you who have friends in the U.S. who may appreciate some unique Australian Aboriginal Art, Walkabout Fine Art Gallery provides the best of both worlds, Aussie knowhow and expertise in Aboriginal Art without being located half a world a way.

Opportunity in India for Aboriginal Art

Please find below an interesting little article about the opportunities for Australian business in the massive fast growing market that is India.

With a population of over a billion and
a large and growing middle class of 325-350 million people, India is an amazing opportunity for Australian businesses, including those involved in Aboriginal Art.

Territory business invited to 'ride the elephant'

An India based AusTrade commissioner has visited Darwin, talking up the export opportunities for Territory businesses.

Aminur Rahman, who hosted the weekend's 'Riding the Elephant' seminar, says local crocodile skin producers, information technology companies and even aviation businesses could play a part in India's booming economy.

"Size is not the issue, it really is about quality. It's about service, it's about the right product. It's also about being in a position to sort of supply things as well."

Mr Rahman says India's economy is growing at more than eight per cent per annum, offering opportunities for in agriculture, resources and Aboriginal art sales.

"It really is a country that's going places, and obviously with our linkages, offers a lot of opportunities."
