NICHOLAS THOMPSON GALLERY
Nicholas Thompson Gallery represents contemporary Australian artists and stages an annual program of exhibitions.
Since opening in 2015 the gallery has exhibited at every iteration of Australia's leading art fairs Sydney Contemporary and the Melbourne Art Fair.
Represented artists' work has been acquired through the gallery by prominent national, state, regional, tertiary and private Australian institutions, as well as corporate and private collections in Australia, Asia, North America and Europe.
Nicholas Thompson Gallery and its exhibitions have been covered by The Australian Financial Review and Magazine, The Financial Times (UK), The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald, ABC and SBS as well as significant Australian art and design publications.
Director Nicholas Thompson was employed for a decade by several of Australia's most renowned art galleries, including Philip Bacon Galleries, Brisbane and Australian Galleries, Melbourne. He has a Masters in Art Curatorship from the University of Melbourne and Honours in Art History from the University of Queensland. Thompson is approved to value Australian painting, sculpture and works on paper after 1950 for the Australian Government's Cultural Gifts Program.
"If the debut exhibition at new Collingwood space Nicholas Thompson Gallery is anything to go by, the young art dealer has an eye for no-nonsense painting..."
