Exchange Policy

We are all human and change our minds from time to time. Cooee Art offers to exchange artworks purchased by its clients for works of the same or lesser value within two weeks of the initial date of purchase provided the original artwork is returned in good condition. Any additional costs associated with the exchange such as framing, freight or delivery are the responsibility of the buyer.

Returns Policy

We understand that buying a work of art is not something that you do every day. It can be especially difficult for those that buy an artwork without the opportunity to view it in person. Cooee Art offers any client that has not personally viewed the painting before purchase, a full refund if the artwork does not meet their approval upon delivery.

This offer is made under the following conditions:

  • The refund is for the cost of the artwork itself and not for the extra freight and packaging costs associated with the sale.
  • The buyer must contact the gallery within 48 hours of receiving the artwork to inform the gallery manager of their decision to return the work.
  • The buyer will pay for the cost of the return delivery of the artwork.
  • The buyer agrees to return the artwork within two weeks of its arrival at their home or business address.
  • The refund will be paid in full via EFT only if the artwork is received in the same condition as it left the gallery.

Cooee Art’s Ethical Commitment

How a person or business works with Indigenous artists and their cultural material is a reflection of their knowledge, intellect and core values. Indigenous people may be the inheritors of the oldest continuous living culture in the world but they are amongst the most disadvantaged in Australia. Those who do business with them, therefore, have a responsibility to treat them with respect and, in the case of important elders, even reverence.

Just as those who deal in Aboriginal art have an obligation to be transparent and act fairly toward artists and their communities, they must also ensure that they treat their clients with equal respect and fairness.

Cooee Art has worked with Aboriginal artists for more than 35 years. It was a foundation member of the Australian Aboriginal Art Association and the Indigenous Art Code.

Cooee Art is committed to the following core principles:

  • To conduct its affairs in an exemplary manner with regard to the Indigenous arts industry and the Indigenous artists it represents
  • Act fairly, honestly and professionally in dealings with artists, clients, other dealers and all industry organisations
  • Provide proper disclosure of information relating to the authorship and provenance of any work exhibited and/or sold
  • Supply Authenticity Certificates for all artworks that are received directly from artists and original source certificates for all works that it receives directly from community art centres
  • Respect Indigenous cultural practices and artists’ rights
  • Strive for excellence in product presentation and service
  • Take proper care of artworks in its possession
  • Maintain appropriate records including the terms of agreements with artists

Artwork Source Provenance
Since it was first established in 1981 Cooee Art has supported community-based art centres. It also supports independent dealers and artist’s agents and galleries that work directly with artists providing they are members of the AAAA and/or the Indigenous Art Code.

Cooee Art held the first exhibition and art centre launch in Australia for Tiwi Design, Bathurst Island, in 1981, and held exhibitions for the newly established Maningrida and Ramingining communities in Arnhem Land as well as undertaking the first of many consultancies for Indigenous arts organisations over the following 5 years.  From writing the marketing plan and developing product for Bima Wear, Bathurst Island, N.T. to the launch of the fledgling Balgo Hills community art centre in the late 1980s, Cooee Art went on to consult with remote community councils in the Tanami Desert and the Torres Strait Islands as they worked toward the establishment of community art organisations. During the early 2000s, it became the first to promote the work of Western Pitjantjatjara artists through staging exhibitions by the Spinifex People of Western Australia.
Between 2003 and 2008 Coo-ee Art’s Founding Director acted as the Aboriginal art specialist for Lawson~Menzies and was appointed Managing Director of Menzies Art Brands, Australia’s largest privately owned art auction house. In doing so, he established relationships with major private and public collections, independent dealers, and commercial galleries. Upon his return to Cooee Art in 2008, these continuing relationships have enabled Cooee Art to present ethically sourced, high value, secondary market artworks for sale to its clients throughout Australia and overseas.
Cooee Art issues Certificates of Authenticity for every artwork it offers for sale. It provides 100% safe provenance and a money-back guarantee of authenticity.

Certificate of Authenticity
Cooee Art’s certificates include the vital statistics and specifications of the artwork and any cultural information that has been sourced with the artwork and/or found through our extensive research library and resources.

These may include images of the artists and working photographs (if available) as well as any original source documentation that is available.

Cooee Art’s certification is accepted by the auction industry as a guarantee of ‘preferred’ provenance and authenticity due to the longevity of the business and its reputation in the field.
