THE YEAR THAT WAS

Dennis Nona’s exhibition last month re-established him as a significant and highly collectable artist with works selling globally.

We showed 16 exhibitions from all points of the country – Tasmania, Tiwi Islands & Torres Strait Islands – and many other nations in between.  We added about 3000 items to our inventory and generated a significant volume of sales that benefitted you as recipients but most importantly the artists.  We watched, on one side, a record made at auction for Aboriginal art and noted, on the other side, how hard the retail market had become.  We thank you all for your continued custom!

Great artists passed on including Kudditji Kngwarreye, Tommy Watson, Lenie Namatjira, Freddie Timms, Judy Napangardi Watson, Alma Nungarrayi Granites and others. We mourn with their families and communities.

The Albert Namatjira copyright was returned to the Namatjira Legacy Trust.

The Uluru Statement from the Heart was rejected by the Prime Minister.
THE YEAR THAT WILL BE
We start the year with a superb splash of colour and culture from the ladies of Lockhart River on January 12thThe exhibition is online and available.  Do come in and meet Enoch and two of the artists - Margery Accoom and Irene Namok - at the launch.  Top 20 follows in February celebrating Art Mob’s 20 most popular artists.  Sam Juparulla Wickman is our solo exhibition artist in March and local Tasmanian Aboriginal artist Julian Oates will present his fifth solo exhibition here in April.
YACHTS
What a lovely change to the behemoths that belch noxious fumes and very few customers – we mean cruise ships...  Hobart has been transformed by a flotilla of yachts from the Rolex Sydney/Hobart yacht race and associated races. 
Truly art on the harbour!

Resale Royalty

The review of this act introduced by Peter Garrett in June 2010 was open to review submissions that closed in July 2013.  No outcome has been announced in 4.5 years.  Why does Art Mob oppose it?  Because we actually buy most of our stock up front.  Great for the artist but 5% more expensive for you. 

The technicality of definition of what constitutes a resale was lost – perhaps never considered – and the paperwork is draconian…
New works from Blackstone
Another very fine painting by Janet Nyunmitji Forbes will be here any day!  She’s always in demand and her precision dotting tells the story of the 2 magicians and lawmen – the Wati Kutjarra.  Also arriving will be a painting by Narelle Holland and another mapping of country by young Sharon Doolan
These are truly beautiful works!

KIMBERLEY ARTISTS

New stock works include 2 framed bark paintings from 2003 by Lily Karadada and 2 box framed paintings by the late Queenie McKenzie – very rare and collectable!
