Vivien Anderson Gallery is a specialist gallery with over 20 years expertise in the field of aboriginal art. The gallery specialises in collection development and advice to individual and corporate clients, sales and placement of significant collections nationally and internationally, as well as managing and promoting the gallery artists long term.

Vivien Anderson Gallery was established in 1987 as a private salon specialising in the Aboriginal artists of the central desert. The gallery relocated to Sydney in 1992 and became the Aboriginal and South Pacific Gallery based in Surry Hills. In 1996, the gallery returned to Melbourne and in 2005 a new architect designed exhibition space was completed and the gallery was relaunched as a contemporary Aboriginal art space with regular business hours.

Vivien Anderson Gallery represents a unique group of Aboriginal artists, most of who have been with the gallery since the genesis of their careers. Other artists, such as Trevor Nickolls who is represented exclusively by the gallery nationally and internationally, have had a long friendship and exhibition history with the Director Vivien Anderson. The artists are acknowledged for their original vision, a strong commitment to their work and careers, and universally share a willingness to speak their minds and commit their strong ideas to their work.

Today, the gallery is committed to providing a full and extensive exhibition calendar representing gallery artists. The gallery provides a thoughtful environment to consider major and emerging artist’s work with the facility to extend knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island visual arts through use of the gallery library.

The gallery's director, Vivien Anderson, has over twenty years’ expertise in the field of Australian Aboriginal art. Throughout the last two decades she has managed and directed several acclaimed contemporary mainstream art galleries in Sydney and Melbourne, including Deutscher Gertrude Street, Melbourne and Deutscher Brunswick Street, Melbourne each with a particular emphasis on equal representation of Australian Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists. From 1985 until launching Vivien Anderson Gallery, Ms Anderson was manager of the Aboriginal Artists Gallery in Melbourne.

 Vivien Anderson is registered Valuer for insurance and donation under the Tax Incentives for the Arts or Cultural Bequest programs of the Commonwealth Government of Australia for all Aboriginal paintings and sculpture from 1900 to the present day.


Gallery Hours: Wednesday - Friday 11am - 5pm; Saturday 11am - 4pm; and by appointment.
