If you are wanting a valuation or appraisal – whether for insurance, as a gift, or for sale – we recommend our own Aboriginal art expert, Adrian Newstead, a valuer of Aboriginal and contemporary Australian art accredited by the Federal Department of the Arts, and a widely published arts commentator and author. Adrian acted as the Head of Aboriginal Art for Lawson~Menzies Auction House 2003-2006, and Managing Director of Menzies Art Brands 2007-2008. He also advises and acts for artists and collectors when buying and selling collectable Australian contemporary and Indigenous artworks at auction and through private sale.

The valuation fee is scaled: for an artwork over $5000 the cost is $350; for an artwork under $5000, the cost is $280.
