The exhibition dates are 1 - 28 November. Come and join us for opening drinks being held on the 4 November, 5.30 - 7.30 pm. Otherwise feel free to just stop by during the exhibition to see a great example of how our art can enhance any corporate environment! To coincide with the exhibition kate owen gallery is pleased to announce that it will be offering a free art trial to the tenants of Aurora place (offer available for the month of November only).

Kate & Severine's recent trip

We just got back from Alice Springs and had an intense but fabulous week!

We attended the exquisite Desert Mob exhibition at the Araluen Centre and have worked on sourcing new artists, and talking with some new (for us) Community Art Centres.

Some of the works we selected in Darwin and Alice Springs have arrived and will soon be posted on our website. There are some true gems that we can’t wait to show you.

We also met with lots of our artists including our old friend Kudditji Kngwarreye who is still painting some wonderful art, and catching up talented emerging artist Gracie Ward who was painting alongside her parents George Ward Tjungarrayi and Nungawarra Ward. It was really special to see the family working together, but each with their own distinctive style. Gracie’s works have gone from strength to strength over the past year and as her confidence has grown, her paintings have truly blossomed. More about her later.

What made this trip even more special was seeing the Todd River flowing- yes, not just a trickle - and the flowers blossoming in the bush. This truly inspired us to select some outstanding wildflower works for our ‘SPRING COLLECTION’ exhibition of works by sisters Kathleen Ngale and Polly Ngale together with Polly’s daughter Bessie Petyarre.

Stay tuned for more info!
