DISCUSS YOUR NEEDS

Don’t be intimidated to discuss your needs or wants. Most galleries have stockrooms where amazing pieces can be discovered. Gallery staff know what they have behind the scenes, and they may also have an idea of what is coming up that might be what you’re looking for. Mitchell Fine Art’s stockroom offers a large range of Aboriginal and Contemporary Australian artworks. If something is not on display it does not mean it’s not available.

ART IS PERSONAL

Don’t feel the need to follow trends. If it is a work of art that you are going to see daily, it must be something you love. However you decide is a completely personal decision.
