Territorial Acknowledgement: Alcheringa Gallery, proudly representing indigenous artists, respectfully acknowledges that we operate our business on the unceded traditional territory of the Lekwungen and Coast Salish Indigenous peoples, including Esquimalt, Songhees, and W̱SÁNEĆ First Nations.
The mandate of the gallery - in an era of truth and reconciliation - is to promote and support the art of contemporary indigenous artists from the Northwest Coast of Canada, Papua New Guinea, and Australia, to the Canadian and international fine art market.
Our Name: Alcheringa is an Aboriginal Australian word for the Dreamtime, the mythical time of creation, when the world and all living creatures were sung into existence. It is believed that singing and dancing maintain the state of the landscape, and that these invisible songlines hold the earth together.
Our Work: We are proud of the work we have done to recognize and promote the work of indigenous artists in all stages of their career, and from all over the Pacific Rim. Alcheringa has worked with private collectors, governments, museums, architects, designers, and corporate clients. We also provide consultations and appraisals to clients regarding indigenous art and projects.
