The Aboriginal Art Association of Australia
JGM Gallery is a member of The Aboriginal Art Association of Australia, which serves and represents artists, individuals and organisations that produce, promote, protect or support Aboriginal art and the cultures that create and nurture that art.
We ensure the work is authentic, properly documented, define the provenance of the work and determine where and how it was made, and how it has come onto the market.
All our artwork comes from reputable sources, and we subscribe to the AAAA's Code of Ethics.
We consider an artists reputation and profile, and how the artworks compare in quality with other works by the same artist.
