Anne Zahalka is available for public and private commissions. As a highly-regarded Australian photo-media artist, with a practice spanning more than thirty years, she is well versed to develop and accomplish commissioned Works. 

Anne’s vision and multi-disciplinary approach to the creation, execution, production and final form of the Work is discussed with her clients. A proposal is then developed to realise the brief through encapsulating  the artist concept, research, approach, scope, timeline and budget. Photographs and documentation from each commission become part of the artist archive.


Anne is commissioned by institutions and organisations to development large and small scale projects responding to pointed, complex briefs. The Works created are considered, informed, highly resolved and professionally produced for the multiple, public outcomes required.

Completed commissions include Parliament House at Work commemorating the 25th Anniversary of Parliament House, Canberra and Welcome to Sydney, a series of portraits depicting migrants for Sydney’s International Arrivals Terminal at Sydney Airport.  The Innovators – collectors who shaped Sydney’s Avant-Garde, 1963 -1978 was a series of commissioned work for exhibition.
