Prescriptions for Art Lovers
Art Pharmacy is an online gallery that hosts regular pop-up exhibitions around Sydney. Our aim is to make affordable art accessible to everyone, while supporting local Australian artists. We have original prints, oils, watercolours, acrylics, photography and etchings. Art Pharmacy is here for art lovers and collectors – from those who already have substantial collections, to those who are just starting out. The biggest, grandest collectors in the world started off with one piece of art, so we believe that anyone can start an art collection, even on a budget.
We are also utterly passionate about supporting and nurturing emerging Australian artists, and fostering innovative dialogue around their work. All artists represented by Art Pharmacy have their own ‘Artist Page’ featuring artworks, interviews, and information about their career in the arts. When you buy a piece on Art Pharmacy you know that you are supporting local artists in Australia. We believe there are so many undiscovered artists out there and we want to do our bit to help you find them.
All the artists on Art Pharmacy have been specially selected by founder and Director, Emilya Colliver. Emilya has an extensive background in the visual arts, having worked for some of the top art galleries and institutions in the world, including Lisson Gallery, Hauser & Wirth, The British Museum and Eskenazi. Emilya also worked with a private collector for years, James Birch Esq. where she looked after his vast collection of art featuring works by globally renowned artists such as Damien Hirst, Francis Bacon and Gilbert & George (to name a few). This experience has given Emilya the skills to be able to spot emerging artists.
As well as running Art Pharmacy, Emilya also sits on the MCA Young Ambassador Committee, a tour guide for the Sydney Contemporary Art Fair in in September 2013 and recently a nominee for the ’InStyle and Audi Women of Style’.
