About Rob

"Rob, The bentwood box was a great surprise for Conrad. It is beautifully crafted, and he understood immediately the connection to some of our past trips to Vancouver. I am grateful for how smoothly everything went in getting the box here, and should we be looking for more art in the future, I will be glad to turn first to what offerings you have. Cheers, Peter"

It starts with a passion for the art
Growing up the son of a career bush pilot is the foundation of this gallery. I spent countless hours flying with my father during the summers into remote Canadian First Nations communities. Flying throughout both the high Arctic, central and western provinces in my youth whetted my interest in the people, their history, culture and ultimately a passion for their art. Austdone Gallery is the ultimate expression of that passion.

It has grown into a community of interest
Since 1998 I have been working directly with First Nations artists to bring their artwork to galleries, museums, collectors and corporate collections worldwide. I also offer comprehensive acquisition, installation and marketing consultation  for galleries, exhibitions, corporate collections, destination resorts, industry and private collectors. The Austdone Gallery is designed much like a small community, a place for people with a common interest to gather.
