Fall 2019 . . .

 

 

Booker-Lowe will showcase works by leading and emerging indigenous Australian artists, while celebrating . . .

 

The Menil Collection’s stunning exhibition, Mapa Wiya (Your Map’s Not Needed): Australian Aboriginal Art from the Fondation Opale. Mapa Wiya is the Houston area’s first major museum exhibition of contemporary Australian Aboriginal art. Opening September 13th, Mapa Wiya includes more than 100 paintings, shields, hollow log coffins (larrakitj or lorrkkon), engraved mother-of-pearl (lonka lonka or riji), and works on paper chosen from a stellar European private collection. The Menil’s esteemed Curator of Collections, Dr. Paul R. Davis, who has a longtime interest in Oceanic art, is curating the exhibition.

 

We are working with the Australian Consulate-General and The Menil to support the exhibition. The model of Mapa Wiya, which depicts the arrangement of all the works, is very impressive! As you follow the exhibition through several galleries, you will gain a deeper and deeper understanding of the world’s oldest living culture. We believe this extraordinary exhibition will garner international attention, and look forward to seeing you at The Menil -- and at Booker-Lowe -- this fall!

 

 

In the Works at Booker-Lowe . . . The Magic of Metal

 

Since our opening in 2002, Booker-Lowe has occasionally hosted exhibitions that did not feature Australian Aboriginal art. You may recall the photographs of Kenro Izu, ceramics of Pippin Drysdale, landscapes by Ben Shearer, and a handful of others. We are currently working with the Houston Metal Arts Guild to showcase jewelry and objects by experienced and emerging metal artists from the Houston area. We are working closely with HMAG, and look forward to sharing our love of fine craft!

 

 

 

 

 

Booker-Lowe is the leading American gallery for contemporary Aboriginal fine art from throughout Australia. The gallery is open by appointment and for special events. We stock hundreds of paintings and original prints from under $300 to $35,000, and often source Aboriginal artworks for those with special interests or requirements.
