Marshall arts gallery will close its doors in Adelaide on 28 November 2014 after almost 15 years of presenting quality Aboriginal art from community-based art organisations.

The gallery’s owners, Karen and Dirk Zadra, are relocating to Luxembourg to launch an “exciting new IT-driven art venture on which [they] have been working for a few months,” says Karen. She adds, “its scope will not only comprise the Australian art market but will offer opportunities for European artists, galleries, and art lovers as well. There will be more on that from us early next year.”

Reflecting on the success of the gallery, particularly in assisting renowned and emerging Indigenous artists, Zadra says that “while it is sad to see this wonderful gallery close in Adelaide, I leave knowing that Marshall Arts has been instrumental in shaping an awareness of best-practice ethics and respect for artist-owned centres.”
