Why not buy an artwork for Mum this weekend and take home a bottle of Bubbly with compliments of Kate Owen Gallery - to make the occasion even sweeter!
And if you don't need such enticements (or if you ARE the Mum), you might be tempted by the fact that we have several hundred superb works on sale right now. Here are just a few of our offerings to tempt your taste buds (but you can discover your own little gems from our search page!)
I'll start off with two quite different works - both subtle and quite sublime - great for understated interiors:
Natalie Pula Holmes, NHPAP8816 - 60X90cm · $930 (was$1095)
Maggie Napaltjarri Ross, MNRWU530 (new stock), 60 X 107cm, $1095
But if you yearn for colour and energy, this work by Jorna Newberry should do the trick.
Jorna Newberry, JNEAR1236, 120x120cms $4315 (was$5895)
And this, one of my all time favourites, almost glows in the dark but it most certainly glows warmly on those cold winter days. This artwork becomes more intriguing the more you look at it, and as the light changes - a delicious 'yam dreaming' from seasoned Utopian artist Evelyn Pultara.
Evelyn Pultara 'Yam Dreaming' - $6675 (was$7850) 120 x 180cm
Or at the other end of the spectrum, reflect on this supremely elegant 'Goose Egg' painting from Kerry McCarthy from Balgal in the Top End.
Kerry McCarthy, 'Goose Egg' 75x90cm, $1815 (was$2175)
Alma Nungarrayi Granites can't be beaten for her surreal and spacey works depicting the Seven Sisters Dreaming in the Milky Way.
Alma Nungurrayi Granites, 'Seven Sisters Dreaming' (new stock)- AGRWU489 46 X 89cm $1085
And Joyleen Napangardi Reid paints a traditional story with a nicely understated palette... a very nice work.
Joyleen Napangardi Reid, 'Puli', JNRG0105, was $2525 now $1995
Marvel at the seductive deep plums of Charmaine Pwerle's latest 'Awelye' work - this one has enough wow factor for ten paintings!
Charmaine Pwerle, Body Paint 'Awelye', CPWYU1309, 120 x 180cms $7425
Or fosick among our host of enchanting small works, many by well known artists - the perfect gift or treasure for a featureless corner.
It's really a great time to buy Aboriginal art - we have so many superb artworks to choose from at the moment, all on superior quality substrade ( linen that's been meticulously primed to ensure longevity), professional artist grade paints (that won't fade after 6 months!), highly talented artists, painting ancient stories with a contemporary twist.
Most of all, buying Aboriginal art is a purchase that sustains many Aboriginal artists, their families and their communities in a world where their other options are limited. We think it's almost un-Australian not to! Do join us this weekend for pre or post luncheon drinks on your Mothers' Day outing.
