A Cooee Christmas | Advent Calendar

From 27 November to 24 December 2021 | Cooee Art Redfern | Cooee Art Bondi

Few things are as exciting as the lead-up to Christmas. Throughout December, much of the world counts down (or rather up) to the 25th, when stockings have been stuffed and the red and green wrapping paper is rolled up and stashed in the most remote corner of your cupboard……..

 

This year, by popular demand, we are bringing back A Cooee Christmas – our enormously fun recurring exhibition of small, affordable, and most importantly, beautiful paintings. Only this time, the event comes in the form of an advent calendar!

25 timber-framed canvas board paintings by artists from communities such as Warnayaka Art Centre in Lajamanu, Warlukurlangu Artists in Yuendumu, Ngaruwanajirri on Bathurst Island North of Darwin, and Bula Bula Arts in Ramingining Central Arnhem Land are included in the calendar. Each purchase of a gorgeous painting supports the art world, communities, and the artists themselves.

 

 

Here are the rules:

Collectors and gift-givers choose blindly – only on the corresponding day is the artwork revealed.

If you choose a gift for yourself or a loved one, we will make sure a hardcopy and/or digital card revealing your/their present will reach you in time for Christmas.

All artworks will be available for collection from our Redfern Gallery or posted after Boxing Day*

Buyers can pick as many as they like, so be quick and choose yourself and/or a loved one a wonderful Christmas surprise!

*please refer to our holiday hours for collection availability
