Tribal Art Fair

Cell Block Hall in the grounds of National Art School (NAS), Sydney, is the venue for the 2018 ‘Tribal Art Fair’ on Saturday 21 July, from 9am to 5pm. Presented by the Oceanic Art Society (OAS) it will feature a large collection of both traditional and contemporary art and objects, including masks, carvings, bilum bags, pottery, tapa and paintings from Melanesia, Micronesia, Polynesia and Australasia, Asia and Africa. The fair will bring collectors and the public together with society members who are experienced in Oceanic artefacts and artworks. A silent auction will entice visitors with the opportunity to purchase works.

OAS aims to promote, foster and encourage a universal interest and understanding of primitive art and culture from the Oceania region.
