The cancellation of the 2020 Revealed Art Market will result in a significant loss of income for regional and remote Aboriginal art centres and independent artists across Western Australia. This event generates a large amount of revenue for these communities – in 2019 more than $500,000 in market sales went directly to artists and Art Centres across the state. While it was absolutely necessary to cancel this event to minimise the risk of COVID-19 being transmitted to our state’s most vulnerable communities, this and other measures currently being implemented will have a drastic impact on their capacity to generate income through artwork sales.
If you would like to support WA’s Aboriginal Art Centres and independent Aboriginal artists in this difficult time, you may consider purchasing artwork directly from their websites and social media platforms, as listed below.
- FAC does not take any commission for the sale of artworks purchased through the Revealed Art Market or through direct purchases from artists’ or Art Centres’ websites.
- FAC is not involved in the sales or able to assist with purchase administration or artwork freighting.
- Many WA Aboriginal art centres operate with minimal resources and staff, and your patience will be appreciated when conducting online sales.
