Kurun Warun painting at Kate Owen Gallery

Calendar December 22, 2011 10:57 by author Kate Owen

 He was invited to Oprah Winfrey's private party, welcomed her to Australia with a smoke ceremony, painting, dance and digeridoo music; he has danced for Bill Clinton's daughter, received a standing ovation from the Saudi Arabian National Guard and performed at the Sydney 2000 Olympic games! 

Now his impressive resume will be complete as he will paint and perform at Kate Owen Gallery this week!!!

Kurun is a renowned artist, digeridoo player and dancer, but most of all he is known for his iconic Aboriginal Artwork.  He will be painting new works in the gallery, is happy to be photographed and you may even be lucky enough to buy an artwork you have seen him paint.  Kids especially will enjoy this experience.


Most of all, Kurun is a warm and friendly guy who is great to talk with - he straddles Australia's cultures with true Indigenous-Aussie spirit, and loves to talk about his art, his culture and his music.  View some of Kurun Warun's Aboriginal Art or read his biography

The two paintings below are 'Lee Moo Pareeyt (Dry Water)' and 'Black Boy', both 72 x 200cms.

We are pleased to invite you to join us for a Christmas drink and to watch/meet with Kurun, tomorrow and Saturday (23 & 24 December), from 12 - 5pm for a little break from the silly season whirlwind.  All are welcome.




CHRISTMAS SALE on at Kate Owen Gallery now!

Calendar December 19, 2011 00:46 by author Kate Owen

 Here's a great opportunity to buy yourself a special Christmas present!   ... or I guess you could even buy one for someone else.  This year we are discounting all  works in the gallery by varying degrees, but every artwork is discounted.  Just ask our friendly staff or call or email us for a price.

Enjoy a break from the melee with a visit to the gallery to explore your options, or stay at home and use our Advanced Aboriginal Art Search on line, where you can search by colour, size, shape, artist, price, style, region, and a pile of other keywords.  Website searchers can add their favourites to their 'wish list' and email it to us for the best prices we can manage.

Works from our prestigious Aboriginal Art Collectors' Gallery are also on sale, but don't be daunted by the price:  Original Indigenous paintings range from $110 upwards - over 1500 artworks, many artists and styles, and from affordable through to utterly collectible and special pieces by the masters of Aboriginal Art..

New opening hours are 10 - 6pm every day except Christmas and New Year's day, or by appointment!   680 Darling Street, Rozelle (Sydney)  NSW,  2039.

Enjoy a complimentary glass of wine while you explore our delicious gallery! 

This beautiful and mysterious 120 x 180 cms Angeline Ngale painting has been reduced in the sale from $9900 to $6600.  It is an excellent example of the Utopian style first pioneered by her famous relative Emily Kame Kngwarreye, and a superb work by Angeline.  The painting alters subtly with the light conditions;  at times floating and airy layers of colour beguile the eye, while at others, the deeper hues recede into the artwork, visually creating depth and mystery to the piece.
