“Barrku” a first-ever exhibit of art on bark from the art center of Yirrkala in Northeast Arnhem Land in Australia. For centuries the indigenous people of Northeast Arnhem Land have connected with ancestral beings through song, dance and painting. Today making art has become a matter of cultural survival. “These are the oldest continual artistic traditions on earth. An artist inherits rights to a story when they are initiated. There are several layers of initiation, each with more knowledge and more information.” says Julie Harvey, Harvey Art Projects, Sun Valley, Id.
Currently at Seattle Art Museum, is Ancestral Modern: Aboriginal Art Exhibition, from the Kaplan & Levi Collection.
Roby King Gallery in collabortion with Harvey Art Projects, is very proud to be presenting for sale, bark paintings and ceremonial poles created by five artists that are also on view at SAM.

“I’ve always been interested in seeing the beauty in the ordinary. It’s hard to miss the beauty in “ordinary” people – no matter where they live.”

All Gallery Artists!
Raenell Doyle Austrailian Sheperd driving Ewes 6×12 Oil
Something new from Raenell Doyle! When not painting the sumptuous Classically inspired Still Lifes, Raenell raises herding dogs. She has painted some wonderful new paintings inspired by her dogs and what they were bred to do, herd sheep. In her Classical style she creates a timeless quality. This is Sunny displaying her skills rounding up the sheep as the sunlight bounces off their glistening wool. Come in and see now!
