Directory Listings and What's On

Adding your gallery or artist to our directory is free and once registered you can post news about upcoming exhibitions or shows free of charge.

Note to suppliers of digital artwork and images

Advertisers and artists should recognise that what they see on their screens or colour printers is not necessarily colour accurate. Colour accuracy can only be achieved by supplying a hard copy press-proof for matching on the printing press. Further, without seeing the original artworks, such as a painting, colour correction by Australian Art Review to achieve a match is not possible (See information on colour).

As part of our guarantee of top-quality service, all incoming digital material is scrutinised for possible problems in reproduction. If problems are identified in your material, you will be advised of what we have found. Often, with your permission, we can correct the problem or you may wish to replace the material. We are here to assist you maximise the quality of the reproduction of your material.

Suppliers of digital advertising material are responsible for checking all files before sending to Australian Art Review. Any work undertaken by Australian Art Review to process non-compliant material will incur a charge.
