The Nancy Sever Gallery has a lively program of exhibitions that are intellectually stimulating and which highlight achievements in contemporary visual arts.

Our stock room features a wide selection of works by leading Australian contemporary artists, and some of the most exciting and innovative practitioners working in the international contemporary art scene.

We offer a range of art advisory services to private, corporate and institutional collectors: establishment and development of collections, art investment strategies, art research, selection of site specific artworks for new projects, commissioning of artworks, acquisitions, framing, installation and all aspects of collection management.

Nancy Sever, the Director of the Nancy Sever Gallery, has a wealth of knowledge of Australian art gained in over thirty years as a gallery director and curator.

She has been the Director of several galleries in Australia and Cultural Affairs Officer at the Australian Embassy in Paris.

From 1993 to 2012 she was Director of the Australian National University’s prestigious Drill Hall Gallery and Art Collection, now one of the best public collections in Australia. She is the author of numerous essays on contemporary art and has curated over sixty exhibitions, several of which toured internationally.
