Welcome to Aranda Aboriginal Art (formally Australian Contemporary Aboriginal Art).
Adam Knight Curator of Aranda Aboriginal Art has been involved with Aboriginal people since childhood and active Aboriginal Art dealer since the early 1990.s. During that time it has been a privilege for our staff to be able to build personal relationships with leading and emerging Aboriginal Artists and to develop at least some understanding of the expression of their culture through their extraordinary artwork.
Our first Gallery was opened in regional Victoria in 1995 by the Treasurer and Deputy Prime Minister of Australia, The Honourable Ralph Willis, and we were proud to have in attendance at that opening such luminaries as (the late) Rover Thomas and Queenie McKenzie. Our friendship with perhaps the most noted artist of his era, Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri, extended over many years and continues with his children and grandchildren today. ARANDA ABORIGINAL ART represents the finest contemporary pieces with the unique ability to communicate the historical and cultural importance of each indigenous piece.

The major stages of development in the High Street Precinct can be seen today in the architecture of the buildings, from the boom years of the 1880s through to the inter-War and post-War years. The importance placed by the early residents and traders in this commercial area is reflected in many of the ornate buildings erected prior to 1900. This trend continued into the Federation era with many buildings featuring elaborate details. In some cases earlier buildings have been replaced, but much of High Street remains substantially intact.
The Minnawarra Historic Precinct offers a chance to absorb some of Armadale's fascinating local history. Visit the History House Museum to view a range of interesting displays. Check out the Birtwistle Local Studies Library before immersing yourself in the reverence of yesteryear at the Minnawarra Chapel. The chapel, was originally built in 1903, and was relocated brick by brick to its current location in 1987. Enjoy the calming sanctuary whilst taking in the lovely lake outlook. The Local Studies Library is housed in the old Armadale Primary School, which was built in 1900. The parklands surrounding the Historic Precinct provide a great spot for a picnic with a large lake, paved and shaded picnic areas, expansive lawns and a variety of water birds to keep you company. Armadale is a 30 minute drive southeast of the city, and is well serviced by busses and trains.
