Gallery Gondwana has a reputation world wide in the field of contemporary indigenous art, provenance assured.
Gondwana is the name of the great supercontinent and the vision when it was founded by Roslyn Premont in Alice Springs in 1990 was to showcase not only Australian indigenous art but of that of neighbouring countries as well. She has achieved that by recently opening a gallery in Fiji.
For more than 25 years it operated a gallery in Alice Springs along with an artist studio to support the practice of key artists such as Dorothy Napangardi, Julie Nangala Robinson, Dr George Tjapaltjarri, Barney Campbell Tjakamarra, Polly Napangardi Watson, Gracie Pwerl Morton and Fijian born multi-media artist, Rusiate Lali.
It also had a Sydney Gallery in Danks Street, Waterloo from 2002-2007 with a strong exhibition schedule showcasing art from various art centres from all over Australia.
A founding member (as the first Secretary) of Art Trade (now known as AAAA Australian Aboriginal Art Association), it was also a member of the ACGA (Australian Commercial Galleries Association.
In Alice Springs, Gallery Gondwana now operates from a beautiful Showroom which clients are welcome to visit by appointment and through their online presence.
