Recently rebranded as Mitchell Fine Art after moving to the vibrant arts precinct of Fortitude Valley, this is a bit of a change from Alice Springs. Despite this transition, Mitchell Fine Art, formally know as Muk Muk Fine Art, is letting its 20 years of experience do the talking.

The Director, Mike Mitchell grew up in the Northern Territory, living and working in remote communities for many years. An avid collector, it was this passion that led to the initial founding of Muk Muk Fine Art. However after 20 years in the Northern Territory, the recent move to Brisbane, with a new name and space speaks of an exciting challenge and refreshing stage for the gallery.

Already well-established with an impressive group of contemporary indigenous and non-indigenous artists, the gallery aims to continue to broaden its scope.

Adding to Brisbane’s thriving cultural scene, Mitchell Fine Art brings with it a wealth of experience and knowledge of contemporary art that stretches from its origins in Alice Springs. As a result of this breadth in outlook and experience, the gallery has a wide range and variety of artists.

Director Mike Mitchell commented on the gallery’s diverse stable of artists, stating, “After 15 years of dealing exclusively in Aboriginal Art, we started exhibiting some of the country’s leading artists a number of years ago”.

Listing a few artists Mitchell added, “The gallery boasts a stable of some of Australia’s leading contemporary aboriginal and non-Aboriginal artists. Those represented include George Gittoes, Jeff Makin and Margaret Loy Pula” .

Despite its new location Mitchell Fine Art will stay true to its beginnings with a strong focus on indigenous art, as well as keeping a contemporary outlook by continuing to nurture emerging talent.

Located at 86 Arthur Street Fortitude Valley, Mitchell Fine Art is situated in the middle of Brisbane’s vibrant arts precinct.

The gallery will officially open 6-8pm Friday 28 August, make sure you go along to see this exciting cultural addition to Brisbane’s art scene.
