Adam Knight

Vice-President

Since the opening of his first gallery in 1995, Adam Knight has owned and operated nine commercial art galleries. His current ventures include Director of Australia’s largest Aboriginal art gallery located at the renowned Mitchelton Winery in Victoria and The Hubert Estate, Gallery of Art in the Yarra Valley. His involvement in the procurement and sale of works of contemporary Aboriginal art has spanned three decades. During this time Knight has come to influence the careers of prominent Aboriginal artists including Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri, Rover Thomas, Ningura Napurrula, Naata Nungurrayi, Tommy Watson, and Gloria and Kathleen Petyarre.

Adam has maintained long-term representation of a group of artists that also extends to artistic family members and he has developed extensive relationships within the Community Art Centre network and leading Australian auction houses.

A unique childhood experience of travel in remote locations of Australia offered an opportunity to build strong and long standing connections in Aboriginal communities. This foundation provided Knight a privileged position of trust and continuing relationships with leading and emerging Aboriginal artists. This bond developed a strong appreciation of the artists' expression of Aboriginal culture through their unique work. Knight’s valued friendship with the renowned artist Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri extended over many years and Knight currently represents Clifford’s artistic children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Knight became a Perpetual Benefactor of the Gold Coast Art Gallery in 2012. In 2013 Knight created the Art Walk at Bond University to showcase their extensive collection of Indigenous Art. He is the head curator of the highly acclaimed exhibition ‘Connection’ the multi sensory production at the the National Museum of Australia in Canberra. Knight is a member of the Art Consulting Association of Australia and an accredited valuer for the Australian Government's Cultural Gifts Program.
