Sarah Brown

I had my first solo exhibition of paintings in Maryborough QLD on my 16th birthday. Two more exhibitions occurred before I turned twenty. Life as a bush nurse in remote NT, WA and Tasmania and the arrival of three babies put paid to artistic endeavours for some years! When Imoved to the ‘big smoke’ of Alice Springs six years ago, I decided it was time to pick up the brushes again. It was that, or BURST!

In 2005 I had an exhibition with Ron Talbot entitled ‘Beginnings’ and in 2007 won the Advocate Art Award ‘Places’ prize. In 2008 I won both the Advocate Art Award and the People’s choice Award for ‘Trephina Ghost Gum’.  I paint primarily in acrylics, attempting to capture the unique light and landscape of Central Australia.

I’m a shareholder in Studio 12: a new local art collective gallery in the centre of Alice.

As manager of the Western Desert Nganampa Walytja Palyantjaku Tjutaku Aboriginal Corporation,

I have the honour of working with Pintupi people from the Western Desert. They raised their own funds through painting to establish dialysis services out bush.

CAAS has offered me buckets of support and kindness over the past 5 years and I am proud to be part of the committee.

    Hi Sarah
    I was wondering if you were going to have an exhibition of your paintings in Sydney or Canberra. I like your paintings and may want to buy one. I live in Canberra.
    Also you are doing a great job helping Indigenous people.

    Hi Sarah,

    I fell in love with your works from ‘Travels without Morrie’ – you have captured the colour and texture so beautifully. Do you have other paintings for sale – or as above, are you planning on exhibiting in Melbourne at any time soon?

    Best wishes,

    I found a sketch painting from an estate sale from a sarah brown. Its a black and white sketch painting. Is this you or is it from the past. Please contact me if you know about this artist.

    Hi, we really loved your current exhibition in Alice Springs and would have loved to buy quite few, but alas all were sold, congratulations.

    Hi Sarah,
    Today I saw your work Here at the Araluen arts centre. I loved the way you captured light and the colour of the outback.
    I am passing through Alice so probably will not get to studio 12.
    I live in Melbourne and would like to see more of your work.
