Another month finishes with the highlight being SALA 2012. What did it mean for Indigenu? Firstly it is a pleasure and privilege to be part of the art scene and represent the interests, culture and financial support for all my Aboriginal artists and especially all the Granite family who were featured this year. Your work was well received and has found home in many places across the world. You have all become true, valued friends of Indigenu.
While congratulations are in order, a tremendous thankyou must go to the gifted, Anna Petyarre Pitjara who produced a wonderful suite of works that have all been sold now and as usual she received overwhelming regard for her collection. There are only 2 left of these in the Melbourne on line store and unable to say if further works will become available.
Of course Cafe Troppo opened next door and it has bought the coffee and art culture together and has bought all sorts of new clients to the business, thank you Troppo kids! Don't come to Indigenu without enough time to visit Troppo, you wont be sorry! apparently it's very Melbourne! ( whatever that means!!!)
The online shop had a significant freshen up with a healthy flow of sales, so great work from the Louisa in Melbourne.
Indigenu and Audrey Brumby were awarded a space at the final event for SALA, the Marque sale in King William Street and again further sales and exposure for Audreys work. Sadly Audrey lost her partner some months ago and has needed time out from her usual routine, Indigenu did what they could to support her during this sad time.
A new financial year has also began and there is further optimism for the growth of the business and it great to be part of of a network that supports Aboriginal families, framers, art suppliers, IT support people, musicians - its just been wonderful and not possible without your interest.
