About Aboriginal Contemporary

Nichola Dare and Shorty Roberston, Yuendumu, 2011

Our gallery opened its doors almost ten years ago in Bronte, in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.

Today, Aboriginal Contemporary has an enviable reputation for quality, service and ethical trading; not just with our customers but with the art centres from whom we source our work.

This is in no small part due to owner Nichola Dare’s regular trips to some of the most remote parts of Australia and her ability to build relationships with art centres and artists, based on mutual trust and respect. Nichola’s time in Australia’s Western Desert, The Kimberley, APY Lands and Arnhem Land has also given her a deep understanding of the country and culture at the heart of the art we sell.

These unique relationships mean our gallery can often source artwork otherwise unavailable to private buyers; coupled with Nichola’s exquisite eye, they have made Aboriginal Contemporary a go-to destination for both local and international art lovers.
