Cooee Art MarketPlace introduces its sixth bi-annual Australian Indigenous fine art Auction, the only multi-vendor live auction of its kind.


The sale comprises 97 fine Australian Indigenous artworks, including works on canvas, bark paintings, and sculptures, created in regions throughout Australia from as early as the 1950s by artists of great renown. These artworks, ranging in value from $500 to $80,000, have been selected from over 20 national and international collections.

The sale includes a small but extremely rare Wandjina bark by Alec Mingelmanganu (Lot 15), a superb large watercolour by Albert Namatjira (Lot 20), the largest work ever created by Balgo Hills artist Elizabeth Nyumi (Lot 48), a spectacular large painting by Peg Leg Tjampitjinpa (Lot 36), a range of early Arnhem Land bark paintings and sculptures, and Kimberley ochre works by Rover Thomas, Freddie Timms, Queenie McKenzie, Rammey Ramsey, Jack Dale, Lena Nyadbi, and others.

Due to uncertainty surrounding lockdown restrictions there will be no preview night. All works will be on display at 326 Oxford Street, Paddington, and can be viewed by appointment. To book an appointment for a private one-on-one viewing with our auction specialists, simply select a preferred time here.

Cooee Art will be open Tuesday - Saturday 10-5pm. You can, however, book a one-on-one appointment with a specialist outside this time.
