You may be surprised at what you will find -perhaps something special and unique for that hard-to-buy-for person on your Christmas list.
Since re-opening in March this year, the shop has focused on museum and gallery-related merchandise based on the gallery’s permanent collection, most of which would not be available elsewhere.
Here are a few ideas …
Of course, we always have a range of art books, but take a look at the local artisan work – ceramics by Marjo Carter, beautifully made Buzzbags by Fay Baker andunique Peter Wilson and Val Stuart ceramics, to name a few.
We now have a large range of the Squidinki Bathurst Collection,featuring images of Bathurst on canape plates, notebooks, cards and tea towels.
These aregreat gifts for sending overseas, and we have produced our own merchandise featuring the Permanent Collection of the gallery on individual and boxed cards, and beautiful bespoke silk scarves based on works by Lloyd Rees and Jean Bellette.
Some of our best-sellers are the unique wooden music boxes featuring some of the great cities in the world, along with ‘Flowers in your hair’ jewellery with flora preserved in resin by Ivina Nazarova, and hand-made wooden pens from Gus Campbell.And of course, don’t forget our range of local artists cards and calendars.
The gallery is the outlet for unique jewellery from Fox Artistic Studios.John Fox is a local goldsmith who uses traditional gold-smithing techniques to create beautiful jewellery, using local and regional gemstones, individually handcrafted to ensure longevity, durability and originality.
Of course, we have a focus at the moment on Brett Whiteley to complement our current exhibition – with books, cards and posters for sale in the Gallery Shop.
The Brett Whiteley: West of the Divide exhibition, which will continueat the gallery until January 29, includes paintings, sculpture and drawings spanning three decades.
Remember, entry to the gallery is free.
