Bay Gallery Home recently wrote a feature article about Aboriginal art for London based I-M Magazine (Intelligent Magazine for Inquisitive Minds). An excerpt is available online with the full article published in the new issue now available at all good outlets including Harvey Nichols, Holland Park News, Princess News and Wardour News. The article serves as an introduction to Aboriginal art giving the reader a brief history of Aboriginal art and a broad insight into the different styles and areas the art hails from.
Bay Gallery Home has been shortlisted in 3 categories for the So Glos Gloucestershire Awards including Homes & Interiors Business of the Year, Independent Business of the Year and as a founding member of Tetbury Edit nominated for Shopping Destination of the Year.

Next week we're off to the third Sotheby's Aboriginal art auction where they'll be offering artefacts and art from the 18th century to the present. Master artists from central desert communities on sale including abstract expressionist Emily Kame Kngwarreye, most famous for her record breaking 'Earth's Creation', Janangoo Butcher Cherel, Warlimpirringa Tjapaltjarri and the Prince of Wales (Midpul).
The auctions have had mixed results with some records being reached but works like those of Warlimpirringa Tjapaltjarri 'Tingari Cycle'[s] not meeting expectations. Whereas Michael Nelson Jagamara’s iconic Five Stories, 1984, sold for £401,000 far above its estimate in September 2016.
Naturally the prices for these works far exceed what you would find at Bay Gallery Home. It's our desire to bring beautiful, quality Aboriginal artworks to the UK with prices accessible to the many not the few.
Bay Gallery Home is working hard on creating 'Songlines' our first collection of fabrics based on paintings by artists we proudly represent. We have developed the world's first Aboriginal velvets available in three colours with slightly differing depictions of the Goanna Dreaming (Warnu Jukurrpa) - essentially a love story set in the Central Desert of Australia. In keeping with our 'design with origin' ethos we have been faithful to the original artwork in the design work thereby protecting the Dreamtime story and the intent of the artist. Keep an eye on the website over the next month or so as beautiful tableware, blinds and cushions will be amongst our first offerings.
We have recently built a Testimonial page under our About section on the website. If you have bought from us and would like to give us some feedback please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add your comments to our site.
We send products all over the world ensuring they are all the best quality and safely packaged and as such we've never had anything returned, which we're very proud of.
If you intend to buy from us but are mulling over which wonderful Bay Gallery Home item to buy please keep our Testimonial page in mind should you go ahead with purchasing from us.
'My Country' - Blue wallpaper depicting Kangaroo and Pigweed, found all over the Central Desert looking beautiful with chinaware designs by the world renowned artist Murdie Nampijinpa who paints Two Dogs Dreaming. Murdie is one of the elders sometimes known as the "first contact" group who lived a nomadic traditional lifestyle with their families before the "white fella" made contact. This generation performed ceremonies that, in some cases, are no longer performed but the Dreamtime stories are still told so subsequent generations can maintain their language and connection to the land - their Country.
Original artwork by Murdie is available from www.baygalleryhome.com. These paintings were selected on our last visit to the outback. There's a rawness, depth and spirit to them that speaks to you from thousands of years ago.
