Sabbia Gallery is pleased to announce the recent acquisitions of a number of extraordinary artworks into some of Australia’s premier public collections.
One of Matthew Curtis’ most important major sculptures in recent years, ‘Red Carapace’ has been acquired for inclusion in the Art Gallery of South Australia collection. What an amazing piece to hold in such a comprehensive collection.
‘Within and Without 35’, a stunning piece by Maureen Williams from her solo exhibition, ‘Allude’ in November 2013 has been purchased for the National Gallery of Australia collection. Congratulations Maureen.
Three pieces that were shown in Sabbia Gallery’s ‘Revere – Masters of Glass 2014’ exhibition held in January 2014 have been purchased for inclusion in the Parliament House collection. ‘Brookvale Palette’ by Mel George, along with ‘My Desire’ and ‘Rose of My Heart’ by Laurel Kohut will now sit proudly within this prestigious collection.
Lastly, an important ceramic pot from Sabbia Gallery’s recent indigenous Ernabella ceramics exhibition ‘Tjungu Warkarintja, Fifteen Years’ held in March 2014 has been acquired by the National Museum of Australia. This major artwork by Derek Jungarrayi Thompson ‘Kungkarangkalpa Atila (Seven Sisters)’ will form an integral part of the upcoming Seven Sisters exhibition the Museum is planning over the next few years.
