Happy Easter! We're off to Australia to share our design wares

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.

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 alexandra@baygalleryhome.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

Thank you!

Fabulous Aboriginal fabrics coming to Bay Gallery Home soon

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.

"Yesterday I went to Fortitude Valley in Brisbane to meet gallerists Mike Mitchell of Mitchell Fine Art and Michael Eather of Fireworks Gallery, both Aboriginal Art specialists.

They’ve been in the industry for decades so it was a pleasure to meet them both and see their current exhibitions.

“Weather Patterns II", at Fireworks Gallery, features the work of Matthew Johnson, Rosella Namok and a personal favourite of mine Michael Nelson Jagamara, for whom I had the privilege of doing a sell-out show early on in my career.

 ‘Monochrome’, at Mitchell Fine Art  features the work of hugely talented desert artists such as Dorothy Napangardi, who recently exhibited in the 2015 'Australia' show at the Royal Academy.

If you missed it, the substantial 'Australia' exhibition at the Royal Academy investigated the social and cultural evolution of Australia through its art, from 1800 to the present day. The past two hundred years have seen rapid and intense change, from the colonisation on an indigenous people to the pioneering nation building efforts of the 19th century and the steady urbanisation of the last 100 years.

The exhibition drew on some of Australia's most significant public collections, showcasing the breadth of the landscape and its diverse people through early and contemporary Aboriginal art as well as the work of early colonial settlers & immigrant artists, and some of today’s most established Australian artists.

Here's an more in-depth video of the exhibition, for those with a keen interest!
