Gannon House Gallery is an Australian Art Gallery with a focus on collectable indigenous art from the Northern Territory. The gallery has worked with artists from communities in the Central and Western Desert and Arnhem Land for over 30 years, building one of the largest and unique collections of Aboriginal art in Australia. Many of the artists represented by the gallery have become internationally recognised. The collection also includes an extensive selection of artefacts and bark paintings from early artists and artisans working in Arnhem Land, collected over the last 40 years.
Gannon House is also signatory to the Indigenous Art Code, a commitment to ethical purchasing of indigenous art. All artwork comes with a certificate of authenticity and an information folio on the artist and their work.
Shown alongside the indigenous art are selected Australian contemporary artists, known for their ability to capture the Australian natural world through their imagery or materials. See our Contemporary Art Collection at Gannon Contemporary.
How to Choose Aboriginal Art
Everyone has their own personal likes and dislikes and with art it is no exception. What moves one person will be uninspiring to another. Gannon House Gallery has built a large collection over the last 30 years with quality artwork to suit every taste and budget.
If you are a collector we have an extensive selection of artwork by established artists, included in the collections of the recognised international and Australian institutions. All artwork comes with a certificate of Authenticity and information on the artist and provenence of the artwork where applicable. Many of the paintings also come with working photographs.
The artefacts and sculptures have been collected from communities, auction houses and personal connections over the last 30 years and give insight into the diversity of indigenous Australian culture.
How the artwork will fit into your home, office or collection is also a consideration. With expertise in collection management and interiors Gannon House Gallery staff can guide your purchase.
As outlined above Gannon House Gallery is a signatory to the Indigenous Art Code which recognises our long standing commitment to ethical dealings with communities and artists in some of the remotest parts of Australia. All artwork purchased from Gannon House Gallery comes with a certificate of authenticity from the community or from the gallery.

We work with over 150 different artists from all over Australia and have developed strong working relationships with all.
