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.

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 email@example.com.
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

Margaret Ngwarraye Long, View of Country, Acrylic on Linen 91x76cm (available from Bay Gallery Home)
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.

'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.

Bay Gallery Home adds wallets and coin purses to its expanding gift and homeware range. This leather vegetable dyed collection features Aboriginal Dreamtime stories from the Central Desert, Western Australian and coastal areas of the Northern Territory. They are made in West Bengal using the ancient Shanti craft reinvigorated by Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore during the Mahatma Ghandi era. Designs are applied using batik printing or hand painted. They are the product of a cross cultural exchange supporting Aboriginal artists and Kolkata - West Bengal artisans.
Each design comes with an explanation of its unique Dreamtime story. The wallets are secured by a zip which goes around the whole body - incredibly useful for keeping your cards and money safe while travelling.
More designs, sizes and colours available from February.
