Aboriginal art gallery 'The Artery', which is nominated in this year's City of Sydney Business Awards, has passed on almost $2.5 million in artwork sales to Aboriginal artists and their communities since opening in 2005.
Charities like Yalari, which educates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in regional, rural and remote communities, and the Pools in remote areas program, which builds and maintains swimming pools to reduce chronic ear infections amongst Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander kids, have received money from artworks sold at 'The Artery'.
Gallery founder and owner Alesha Glennon says 'We work with Aboriginal artists from around Sydney, as well as groups in Central Australia, and support them by selling their beautiful artworks and returning all profits to Indigenous charities.'
The Business Award winners will be announced at the City of Sydney Business Awards Gala Dinner on 13 September 2011.
