Why Buy From an Art Centre?

Aboriginal art centres are governed by Aboriginal people – the artists themselves.

All income received through the sale of artwork is shared by the artists and the art centre.

In turn, the art centre perform a range of functions which support established, emerging and novice artists in culturally appropriate ways.

When you buy from a recognised art centre you are purchasing an authentic work of art in a fair and ethical way. Buying from an art centre guarantees:

  • 100% returns back to the Aboriginal artists and the art centres/community centres;
  • fostering of cultural maintenance and
  • development;
  • best practice in the making, marketing and
  • distribution of Aboriginal Art;
  • ensuring artists work in decent conditions and have their rights protected;
  • compliance with the Indigenous Australian Art Commercial Code of Conduct; and
  • the authenticity of the artworks.
