Frequently Asked Questions
Are You Indigenous Owned?
Raintree Art was founded by Shirley Collins in 1986. She is the first Aboriginal woman to own a commercial gallery in the Northern Territory. She gifted Jane the name and logo in 2008 to continue the Raintree Art legacy. So, although Raintree Art is not Indigenous owned, the name was gifted by an Indigenous founder.

What is Art?
Art is an expression of who an artist is. It gives an artist the chance to depict their inner thoughts and feelings, sometimes in abstract ways. This also means it gives others—those viewing the artwork—a chance to connect with the artist, regardless of time or place.
In the case of Aboriginal Art, this is coupled with deeper cultural roots. We are incredibly privileged to be able connect, on one level or another, with artists who are members of the oldest living cultures on the Earth.
Does the Artwork Have Meaning?
Aboriginal Artists create their art in many different styles. The art we sell is generally the kind that most people think of when they think about Aboriginal Art. It is art that is rich with meaning specific to an artist’s kinship group. It is art that sometimes explains the stories within its title, although not necessarily the details. For example, an artist may create a painting called ‘My Country’ that is about their Country, but the specific representations may or may not be open to outsiders.
