Alcheringa Gallery – Contemporary Aboriginal Art

Here at Alcheringa Gallery, we exhibit and market artwork by contemporary artists from the Pacific Rim. This covers a wide geographical range, from Northwest Coast native artists to Australian aboriginal artists and carvers from Papua New Guinea. The aboriginal artworks we are privileged to display are dynamic creations from living and vibrant cultures. They range from wood and metal sculpture through to a wide array of graphic works on paper and canvas.

Our Aboriginal Artists

We are privileged to exhibit and market native art from over 40 emerging and internationally renowned artists including Robert Davidson (Haida), John Marston (Coast Salish), Richard Sumner (Kwakwaka'wakw), Mark Preston (Tlingit), Teddy Balangu (Iatmul- Papua New Guinea) and Dennis Nona (Badu Island - Torres Strait).

Our Approach/ Our Clientele

Here at Alcheringa Gallery, our relationships with our artists and our patrons are very important to us. We provide Canadian native artwork and aboriginal artwork from the Pacific Rim to a vast array of clientele, whether they be seasoned collectors, designers, museums, or travelers with a first-time exposure to these art forms (often resulting in dazzling revelations).

Since aboriginal artwork contains a cultural component, education of clientele is of primary importance to us. Each piece is sold with an artist’s biography and, when possible, an explanation of the story behind each piece. Visitors in the gallery and online can access this information.

We keep track of clients’ individual interests in order to inform them of new works, and develop close friendships with many of them over the years. We hope you also become a part of the Alcheringa family!

We invite you to view our aboriginal artwork in our online catalogue, learn more about our artists and view our upcoming exhibitions.

If you have any questions about aboriginal/ native art or any particular piece we carry, we’re always happy to hear from you. You can get in touch with us by phone (250.383.8224), by email (alcheringa@islandnet.com) or by filling out our online contact form .
