Mike Mitchell – Curatorial Talk

Anatye: Margaret Loy Pula 

Join Mike Mitchell, Director, Mitchell Fine Art, Brisbane as he presents a curatorial talk on Margaret Loy Pula’s compelling exhibition Anatye.

Originally from Darwin in the Northern Territory, Mitchell Fine Art Gallery director Mike Mitchell has had galleries in Darwin, Alice Springs and Brisbane for almost 25 years.  An avid collector for over 45 years it was a passion for collecting art that led him to open his first gallery in the mid 1990’s.

His involvement in the visual arts industry in Australia was exclusively in Aboriginal art for the first 10 years of his business. Aboriginal art is his passion and has been since collecting his first works at around 10 years of age. He has worked with some of the giants of the Aboriginal Art scene including Clifford Possum, Lofty Nadjamerrek, Turkey Tolson, Gloria Petyarre and Ronnie Tjampitjinpa to name but a few. Aboriginal Art continues to be his passion today.

Mike has worked with Margaret Loy Pula since the very beginning of her art career almost 14 years ago. Now based in Brisbane with a gallery in the art precinct of Fortitude Valley Mitchell Fine Art continue to represent Margaret, regularly exhibiting her work both in Australia and around the world.

This is a free event, everyone is welcome.
