Gallery Savah was established in 1990 by Mr. Savah Hatzis at 20 Glenmore Rd, in Australia's premier art
gallery district, Paddington, Sydney.
Gallery Savah offers collectors paintings of exceptional quality and unquestioned provenance thanks to the eye, training, experience and relationships developed by the Director. As of 2010 we are one of less than 40 Australian galleries that have traded for 20 years or more.
Selected Australian artists and the leading indigenous women artists from the celebrated Utopia community, whose work the gallery has promoted since 1993, have been the gallery’s focus in this time.
Gallery Savah has also developed a solid fine art dealing reputation in the secondary market for artworks by prominent Australian and Aboriginal artists.
We’ve promoted important solo exhibitions for artists including Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Gloria Petyarre, David Rankin, Minnie Pwerle, Barbara Weir, Malcolm Jagamarra, Al Skaw, Philip Stallard, Ivan Marchuk, Max Miller, Nico Vrielink, Walangari Kantawarra, Emily Pwerle and others. The gallery has showcased group exhibitions of paintings and works on paper by John Olsen, Arthur Boyd, Fred Cress, Charles Blackman, John Perceval, Brett Whiteley, John Firth-Smith, and others.
The gallery is well known and regarded by important art collectors, artists and art institutions worldwide and has placed artworks in private, corporate and public collections.
