Alesha Glennon B.Des (Int) Hons
A driven and devoted business woman, Alesha established.
The Artery in 2005 following her passion for Aboriginal art.
She has always felt - “you only get one life so you might as
well enjoy what you do”.
Alesha has built the reputation of The Artery off the back of
her genuine interest and great appreciation for Indigenous
Australian art and culture. Her main priority has always been to
create a space that has the function of a gallery, yet the heart
of the outback where the artworks originate from.
With a background as the Head of Design for Parker Furniture in the 1990s and a buyer at Freedom Furniture for 6 years leading up to opening the gallery, Alesha's broad experience, depth of knowledge and artistic integrity has influenced the success of The Artery.

"Jack Of All Trades, Master Of Some"
Originally from Armidale in Northern NSW, Chrissie cut her gallery teeth volunteering at galleries both in her hometown and in Sydney before landing her dream job at The Artery early in 2017.
Chrissie has gained both a Bachelor of Art Theory and Bachelor of Arts (majoring in History) at the University of NSW. During her studies Chrissie took several subjects in Australian Aboriginal art and culture which piqued her interest and commenced her journey into the world of Australian indigenous art.

Chrissie is now utilising her skills and knowledge to connect people to the stories and culture behind the artworks we sell.
