With the support of the Macquarie Group and and the Australia Government’s Indigenous Visual Arts Industry Support program, we have been able to launch a national campaign to support the Indigenous art industry through the current crisis and to promote fair, ethical and transparent trading.

The campaign includes national press and outdoor advertising, social media and coverage in national media outlets.

The campaign features Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from each state and territory, representing a diversity of artistic practice and engagement in the industry.

Fair, ethical and transparent

Bought Indigenous art before?

If you already know the art centres, galleries or independent artists you like, you can check if they’re members of the Indigenous Art Code by searching for them on our member index below.

New to Indigenous art?

If you’re just beginning your art-collecting journey, why not do some virtual window shopping at the websites of our gallery members? Most galleries represent multiple art centres and artists, so it’s a great way to get a feel for the many different styles, as well as sizes and price points.

Galleries can also give you more information about artists and their work, share the Certificates of Authenticity with you and organise shipping if you need it.

Some artists have their own websites and most have their own section on their art centre’s. So, be sure to have a good look around; it’s all part of the enjoyment of buying Indigenous art.

If what you want to buy is from an art centres not set up for online sales, contact them and they can put you in touch with their gallery partners.

From canvases to tea towels

Not everyone’s in the market for a major work from an internationally acclaimed artist. But, if it’s properly licensed, every Indigenous art silk scarf, necklace and coffee mug helps keep artists, art centres and their communities going, galleries open and the world’s oldest living culture strong.

Our art is our lifeline.
