Henry with his Easter eggs - word spread fast as we were soon surrounded by children at the art centre. He'll be among future generations of Aboriginal artists.
It's the time of year we head back to Australia either on sourcing trips or to connect with others in the Aboriginal art and design sectors. The bulk of our time will be spent in Sydney and Brisbane where we'll meet with interior designers and visit Aboriginal art exhibitions including Weave at the Australian Museum, Sydney.
If you'd like to meet to discuss our My Country interiors collection please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bay Gallery Home wishes you all a Happy Easter. We'd also ask you to please vote for us in the Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards in the following categories we've been shortlisted for: Independent Shop of the Year, Home & Interiors Business of the Year and Shopping Destination of the Year @soglos.com/awards/vote

Sabrina is a young Aboriginal Central Desert artist related to the famous colour field abstractionist Shorty Jangala Robertson; like Shorty she paints Ngapa Jukurrpa (Pirlinyarnu) inheriting it from her father and grandfather who in turn learnt it from generations across millennia. Her mother is the world renowned artist Dorothy Napangardi (recently featured in the Australia exhibition at the Royal Academy). Mount Farewell (Pirlinyarnu) is where Sabrina's Dreaming sits in her traditional lands are. She has chosen to depict the sacred Dreamtime story, in a way unique to her, where water appears to travel across the canvas with small water soakages encased in the rain drops and native plants and animals dot the land.
In 2014 her work was selected for 'Same Country Same Jukurrpa' at the Australian Museum. Sabrina's painting was shown alongside hugely important artists of the desert community she comes from including Judy Napangardi Watson, Alma Nungarrayi Granites and Otto Jungarrayi Sims. The exhibition followed on from the world's first Aboriginal women only exhibition held at the Museum in 1992 entitled 'Woman Artists'. The new exhibitions aim was to show the development in artistic styles amongst the artists as they moved away from traditional circular dot painting to establish their unique styles as artists whilst sharing their ancestors stories.
