New gallery window. Two new, original paintings by Queensland regional artist Jay Feather @jayfeather_art have just been installed in our Peregian Beach gallery. On the left: 'The Hummingbirds in the Garden'. On the right: 'Bountiful'. Both 125mm x 94mm, acrylic and oil pastel, and professionally framed in Tasmanian oak. We just love Jay's fearless use of colour and the organic, whimsical themes. Jay's paintings look spectacular, provide a pop of colour and point of interest in modernist and coastal décors. Jay's last exhibition with us sold out quickly so have a stroll by our gallery window if you would like to view Jay's latest works. If you are not local, get in touch and we can send you high-res images. Our Peregian Beach store and gallery are open six days a week (closed Tuesdays).

A pocket tour of @blindside_ari’s ‘B-SIDE’ “curated #exhibition which features 50 of #BLINDSIDE ’s significant #alumni , .... a #celebration of the #community of #artists that have supported BLINDSIDE. Each artist has invited a contributor, be that another artist, a writer, a friend even a family member, to submit a work as a ‘B-SIDE. The ‘B-SIDE’ is revealed only to the lucky purchaser of the work. Not only does this highlight the #relationship that exists between the artist and the contributor, it might provide an interesting response to the #artwork you’ve purchased, or introduce you to an artist you might not have previously been aware of.”— @verityelyse 🕳
