INSIDE: local art
Posted by Cerentha Harris on 10/20/2007

HARRY: I bought my husband a rather selfish present for father’s day last month (one of those gifts that was as much for me as him!) It was the new beautifully illustrated and researched book on Australian aboriginal art, One Sun, One Moon. We’ve been interested in these beautiful paintings for a long time but never known enough about them to feel confident buying one. Armed with lots of knowledge from the ‘One Sun’ I’ve now started doing my own research. I’m collecting info on reputable galleries - like Cooee, Annandale, The Artery and Flinders Lane in Melbourne (who ship to the US). But I’ve also discovered art on ebay. My brother’s lovely girlfriend just bought two wonderful graphic aboriginal paintings on ebay so I checked it out and am now bidding on 6! I’m hopeless, hopeless, hopeless with this kind of stuff. But they all seem like such bargains - (and, best of all, most ship to the US). Of course, there are good dealers and not so good dealers but it’s easy to check all that stuff out on ebay and with Google. Right now I’m loving the work of Mitjili Napurrurla (above) and the amazing Gloria Petyarre (below) and Ngoia Pollard Napaltjarri (bottom). I’ll let you know if any of my ebay finds work out!
