The Exhibition is presented by the OLSEN GRUIN Gallery.
Olsen Gruin Gallery is co owned by Tim Olsen, one of Australia’s most recognised and respected art identities and arts industry dynamo and New York resident, Emerald Gruin.
“Sharing Country” show cases works by leading contemporary Aboriginal artists from the most remote desert communities.

The quality of these artworks reflects the richness and diversity of Indigenous culture and the distinct differences between language groups and geographic sacred sites and landscapes. Art has always been an important part of Aboriginal life, connecting past and present, the people and their land, and the dreamtime.
The official opening was a hugh success and attended by such luminaries as Fred Myers the highly respected Pintupi expert and Professor of Anthropology at New York University and highly respected New York Art Critic, Anthony Haden-Guest.
