Alcheringa is an Aboriginal Australian word for the Dreamtime, the mythical time of creation, when the world and all living creatures were sung into existence. It is believed that singing and dancing maintain the state of the landscape, and that these invisible songlines hold the earth together.
The mandate of the gallery is to create a following for the work of individual aboriginal artists from three areas of the Pacific, the Northwest Coast of Canada, Papua New Guinea, and Australia, in the fine art market in Canada and abroad.
In particular we recognize and promote the work of master carvers living in small villages in remote communities in the South Pacific. Alcheringa reimburses artists at a level that allows them to maintain their position as artists within their communities, and to cover their medical expenses and school fees.
Alcheringa has worked with private collectors, museums, decorators and corporate clients. We are pleased to provide free consultations to clients developing projects of all sizes.
