— About the Charles Nodrum Gallery

Charles Nodrum established his Melbourne art gallery in 1984 and moved to the present premises at 267 Church Street in Richmond in 1988. The gallery presents regularly changing solo and group exhibitions of modern and contemporary Australian art, with a strong focus on 1960s Australian abstract and alternative art movements – as well as some international art of the period. The gallery also deals extensively on the secondary market – both selling work on consignment for clients and dealing on its own account.

The gallery offers artwork for sale on behalf of contemporary artists and artist’s estates. We also sell works of art on the secondary market on behalf of private collectors and vendors. Three themed group exhibitions are presented each year which bring together these strands:
‘Abstraction’ focuses on the abstract art movements from the 1950s to the present;
‘Modern Australian Painting’ includes representational painting and sculpture; 
and ‘Works on Paper’ in an annual exhibition running from December to February.

The Charles Nodrum Gallery acknowledges the Wurundjeri people as the traditional owners of the land on which we work. 

About the Charles Nodrum Gallery

Charles Nodrum is a qualified art valuer for all periods of Australian paintings, sculpture and works on paper (including graphics) with the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program. He can provide valuations for public, corporate and private collections, both large and small, for insurance, probate, family division, gifts, etc.


The gallery can offer advice on restoration, framing, transport, art installation and hanging. We also offer advice on collection policy and management (large or small). This will include discussion of the overall curatorial direction and will extend to the placing and hanging of specific works of art. We have long and sound experience in presenting paintings and sculpture of varying periods and styles in a coherent and satisfying way, to maximise the artistic coherence of the collection as a whole.


All prices are listed in Australian dollars unless otherwise indicated, and all prices include GST. For inquiries outside Australia contact the gallery to clarify the varying levels of GST applicable. We accept Visa and Mastercard (fees may apply) and welcome payment by cheque and direct transfers.
