AUSTRALIAN GALLERIES SYDNEY
Australian Galleries was established in Melbourne by Tam and Anne Purves in June 1956. The space was originally the Purves' pattern manufacturing business, but their vision and driving force resulted in the development of a commercial gallery to show the small group of culturally important post-war Australian artists emerging in Melbourne who at the time had nowhere to seriously show and sell their work.
Now under the sole directorship of Stuart Purves, Australian Galleries continues to represent significant contemporary Australian artists including Inge King, Colin Lanceley, William Robinson, Garry Shead, Jeffrey Smart, Tim Storrier and John Wolseley along with the Estates of George Baldessin and Lenton Parr as well as a role in the Estates of Arthur Boyd, John Coburn, Lloyd Rees and Brett Whiteley.
