Australian Aboriginal Art:
Booker-Lowe is partnering with Australia’s oldest indigenous art gallery, Coo-ee Gallery (Bondi Beach and Paddington NSW) to showcase 30+ paintings by “old masters,” leading artists, and exciting new talents.
Beyond Time features masterworks by well-known painters who helped launch the Australian Aboriginal art movement in the 1970s, including Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri and Emily Kngwarreye; senior artists who have continued and expanded the movement both geographically and stylistically, such as Judy Watson Napangardi and Gabrielle Possum Nungarrayi; and emerging artists who are building on the legacies, e.g., Genevieve Kemarre Loy, Patrick Tjungurrayi and Jennifer Ingkatji. [See the Beyond Time catalogue- with the stories behind some of the featured paintings - on this website!]
Adrian Newstead, founder of Coo-ee Gallery, is one of Australia’s leading experts on Aboriginal art, and author of “The Dealer is the Devil: An Insider’s History of the Aboriginal Art Trade,” a fascinating read about his 30+ years working with indigenous artists. He is a former president of the Indigenous Art Trade Association (Booker-Lowe was the first international member!), and was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia for his service to the museum and galleries sector in 2016. We are honored to partner with Adrian and the Coo-ee staff to present Beyond Time !

We hope you will also mark your calendars for upcoming events at The Menil Collection, which is currently hosting Houston’s first major museum exhibition of Aboriginal art, Mapa Wiya (Your Map’s Not Needed): Australian Aboriginal Art from the Fondation Opale. This extraordinary collection of more than 100 paintings, hollow log coffins, works on paper, and other objects, will be on display through February 2nd.
Booker-Lowe is the leading American gallery for contemporary Aboriginal fine art from throughout Australia. We stock paintings from under $300 to museum quality works, and often source Aboriginal artworks for those with special interests or requirements.
