Oceania Art Gallery

Welcome to Oceania Art Gallery

We offer artefacts from Micronesia, Melanesia, Polynesia and Australian Aboriginal Art.

We are always interested in seeking collections and individual pieces from 19th to early 20th Century. Your confidentiality is assured.

While art collecting is one of the most exhilarating and satisfying endeavours it comes hand in hand with wanting to know all about them!  We have gathered items with over 30 years and we are confident in the pieces we offer to you. We have had the pleasure of enriching  many fine private collections - whether you are taking the first steps or are a connoisseur we would be delighted to hear from you.

We buy and sell collections and individual pieces. Confidentiality is assured. Oceania Art guarantees and underwrites the accuracy of given descriptions and details of pacific tribal art items listed on the website.

Oceania Art can also provide written documentation of item value for insurance purposes, whether on a single item or an entire collection. We welcome your enquiries and the opportunity to provide you with assistance or advice and look forward to hearing from you.
