These contemporary fine art galleries and ethnic arts links are very selective. I present only online galleries and fine-art sites that I think are excellent resources. They must be superior in content and viewer-friendly. (However, please be aware that I have no experience buying anything from these sites, and the business aspect is not part of my selection criteria.)

In addition to selecting for quality, I have selected only types of art that I personally like. But my interests and taste in art are rather eclectic, so you will find a variety of art and galleries here. I add new links I find them, and suggestions are always welcome, as are notifications of broken links! Please contact me with your feedback.

Don't forget to visit my individual contemporary artists links!

Contemporary Fine Art Galleries

The John C. and Susan L. Huntington Archive of Buddhist and Related Art: Online Exhibitions

Interesting collection of online exhibitions gathered from various museums, from calligraphy to jade to basketmaking. Browse by iconography, medium, location, etc. Something to explore at your leisure! (2016)

Mohan's Hindu Image Gallery (www.hindugallery.com)

Many images of Hindu dieties and personages. Interesting site. Unfortunately, the numerous enlargements open from diety names instead of from thumbnails, so visual navigation is difficult. (2016)


Australian Aboriginal Art

Aboriginal Art Galerie Bähr

A German gallery presents aboriginal paintings of the dot style. Click the little arrows to see the paintings one by one. (2016)


Japanese Art

Ukiyo-e Site of Hans Olof Johansson

A wonderful site including not only a gallery of traditional ukiyo-e prints by the masters and others, but also links to other sites on ukiyo-e, and question/answer board, and other resources. A great place to start. (2016)

Jim Breen's Ukiyo-E Gallery (www.csse.monash.edu.au/~jwb/ukiyoe/ukiyoe.html)

Another fine site with a gallery of prints and links to other ukiyo-e websites. (2016)

Stuart Jackson Gallery (http://jacksonarts.com)

A beautiful commercial gallery of various styles of ukiyo-e prints. Woodblock prints were produced in large quantities over the centuries, and I noticed while in Japan that antique Japanese prints are still quite affordable. (2016)

Viewing Japanese Prints by John Fiorillo

This thorough, educational site gives a great overview of different types of Japanese prints and the famous artists, with a few contemporary artists and information on printmaking techniques, among other things. However, the site is not set up as a gallery, and is more oriented toward informational text than quick browsing of images. (2016)

Japan Print Gallery (www.japaneseprints.net)

A commercial gallery with a huge selection of traditional Japanese prints by all the famous artists. Outstanding thumbnails and enlargements. You must select the name of the artist before seeing the images. (2016)


Pacific Northwest Indian Art

Shotridge Gallery: one-person gallery of sculptor Israel Shotridge (

Navigate to the gallery to see finely crafted art of the Tlingit style in many media from wood to glass, including traditional forms of totem poles and reliefs. (2016)

Marvin Oliver:one-person gallery (http://www.marvinoliver.com/serigraphs/index.html)

Art in the classical Northwest Coast Indian style. Eloquent and original sculpture and elegant though more predictable prints. (2016)
