The Artery Contemporary Aboriginal Art Gallery supports First Nations Artists and their families.
Since opening in 2005, we have become specialists in affordable Contemporary Aboriginal Art.
We welcome you to our gallery, whether you visit us in person or online. We sincerely look forward to helping you find the perfect painting; be it a birthday, engagement, wedding, corporate gift, or just to make you happy!
Our website is an integral part of our business and is updated daily. We have made sure the website, like the gallery is easy to navigate and all the information is right there for you, including price, size and information about the artist.
"The Person That Does Things"
Leah became part of The Artery team in 2011, bringing her highly developed gallery administration skills and keen eye for detail. Leah studied at the University of Sydney and obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts, followed by a Masters in Museum Studies from Macquarie University, and her teacher's degree from Charles Sturt University. Now having three degrees, she is now officially over qualified.
Over the years, Leah has a learnt a great deal about Australian Indigenous culture since joining our team and loves to chat to people about it. She is also integral to keeping the gallery organised.
FUN FACT: A crazy ultrarunner, Leah completed her first 100 mile race in 2017 "The Great North Walk Ultras", sneaking in just under 32 hours to run it. Complete with horror blisters, of course.
"Mr Fix It"
Philip joined the Artery in 2019 following a lengthy career in the Industrial and Telecommunications sectors.
His passion for travelling in general, in particular our vast country, has led to his appreciation of our First Nations people and their connection to the land. Whilst travelling to the desert communities outside of Alice Springs, Philip’s interest in Western Desert art grew and so did his collection.
He now enjoys discussing the artworks with visitors to The Artery and explaining the art, the stories, and the connections to the land. Like all of the Gallery staff, Philip’s enthusiasm to create a memorable visit to the gallery is a great asset.
FUN FACT: Back in the early 90s, Phil was crowned 'Tiler of the Year'.
Affectionately known as Mond (long story), Raymond brings many (many) years of experience from creative industries. His experiences include Curator and Education Officer at the Tanks Art Centre in Cairns, owner operator of Cr8Studios in Coffs Harbour, Management Team at Paddington Markets Sydney, and Photographer and Digitisation specialist for regional galleries and artists.
Escaping Sydney to go bush in 1999 and vowing never to return, here he is back after 20 years, happily at The Artery.
FUN FACT: Mond was the assistant choreographer and dance tutor for the international dance hit movie, "Strictly Ballroom". A.K.A: His 15minutes of fame.
Hailing from Port Macquarie, Riley relocated to Melbourne for study before settling down in Sydney at the beginning of 2020.
Riley has completed a BA of Fine Art through RMIT and is now completing a Masters of Secondary Teaching at UNSW.
Riley joined The Artery Team in early 2022, and is quickly gaining knowledge of Indigenous art and culture. Through her passion for learning, Riley brings the artworks to life by sharing her knowledge of their meanings and symbols.
FUN FACT: Likes to drink red wine through a straw (metal of course!!)
