Bett Gallery Hobart - About us, 9 July 2011 [cached]
Dick and daughter Emma Bett are usually in attendance, as the eclectic clientele drops in.
There is currently a growing focus on Aboriginal art, spearheaded by Emma Bett who is an Aboriginal art specialist.
Emma Bett, Gallery Manager
Emma Bett is the third generation of Bett gallerists, and with so many collective years of art knowledge behind her, brings a promising future to the gallery.
Emma is a specialist in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies: an interest which was spurred by the Aboriginal art she encountered in the gallery in her formative years. "I felt I didn't know enough about Aboriginal Australia" says Emma, so she took a bachelor's degree in the subject, specialising in art and language. Emma has spent much time in Arnhem Land and is a speaker of Gupapuyngu, a Yolngu language. "I see the gallery becoming more involved with Arnhem Land art," says Emma, "and in bringing a younger side to the gallery, I would also like to work with new, young artists."
Emma believes the Australian art world is at an exciting crossroads. "A decade of unprecedented economic prosperity has spurred intense activity amongst artists, gallerists and specialist curators across the country," she says.

Emma Bett of Hobarts Bett Gallery told The Mercury: Its employing a lot of very, very, young artists; artists who are just starting out in their careers who would otherwise be working in kitchens, washing pans and serving coffees. Instead, they are now working in an environment surrounded by world-class art; art that they wouldnt have had any involvement with unless theyd travelled overseas. This is going to have a direct impact on their own practice and you can already see it starting to come through; its pushing these artists boundaries. Allanah Dopson, who operates Handmark Galleries in Salamanca Place and Evandale and is Deputy Chair of the Brand Tasmania Council, said: I agree with Emma.
Ms Bett attended the Melbourne Art Fair last year and said it was an exciting time to be in the Arts industry.
