SHOWCASING AUSTRALIAN FIRST NATIONS ART IN THE UK
Frewen Arts supports Australian First Nations Artists to exhibit and sell their work in the UK and Europe. Working predominately with Indigenous owned Australian Art Centres and within the Indigenous Art Code parameters, Frewen Arts facilitates Indigenous Artists own representation and agency overseas. Frewen Arts has placed works in Government Institutions, UK Museums, corporate and private collections and raised funding/sponsorship for cultural selling exhibitions.
Founder, Georgina Martin has spent time living and working alongside Indigenous Artists, working in the early 90’s for Indigenous owned Raintree Gallery in Darwin. Funded by The Arts Council and Visiting Arts, she curated the first major UK exhibition of Kunwinjku Arts from Oenpelli 'Keepers of the Mimi Spirit' 1997 at the October Gallery and the Commonwealth Institute. She was instrumental in the addition of Aboriginal Art onto the London Arts Board curriculum.
As an experienced Consultant PR Director who travelled between Australia and the UK in the 2000’s, Georgina launched Frewen Arts in 2015. Currently, Frewen Arts exhibits paintings and multimedia events with accompanying educational programmes in London and the UK. They have been featured in The Independent, Daily Telegraph, Evening Standard and on BBC World Service.
