The Buy Art Fair, Manchester

In October G&B headed north to the Buy Art Fair in Manchester. What a great city Manchester is - easy to walk around and full of great restaurants and bars. We loved it. Here are some of the photos from the show.  Well done to Andy Coombs who sold not one, but all of four of his sculptures and to Chitra Merchant who also sold well at the exhibition

Meet the Artists event!

Thank you to everyone who came to the “Meet The Artists” event on Saturday in conjunction with the “Psyche, Dreams & Spaces” exhibition. Artists Toni Cogdell and Antonella Scarpa-Isles were in the gallery to discuss their work. The wine flowed and the afternoon whizzed by! Here are some of the photos:

Gallery in Bath opening soon!

Gallery & Barrow are about to open in Bath UK! Our address will be 118A Walcot St, Bath, BA1 5BG. We are opposite The Bell pub!

Well after 3 months of renovation and hard work, there is finally light at the end of the tunnel! The original shop has been split into two and we are taking one half of it - number 118A. We have sanded back the floors, added in new track lighting and picture rails, repainted and installed a kitchenette into the basement amongst other things.  

The new artwork is being delivered as we speak and we’re starting to hang for the first time.  We have yet to paint the exterior and to add the name of the shop.  Here are some work-in-progress photos. We should be open in just over a week, so please do come and visit us soon!

Bringing collectors and artists together

It’s a joy when a collector is searching for a piece of art and an artist is looking to sell and the two click like a jigsaw puzzle falling into place. That’s exactly what happened recently when a collector friend of mine asked me to help her source a piece of art for her flat in Los Angeles. Having become familiar with the LA art scene while living there for 6 years, I was instantly able to make a few suggestions.  My friend loved the work of established artist, Emma Ferreira, who I suggested, and we trotted off to meet Emma at her studio

Although born in England, Emma Ferreira now lives in LA . Her work received much attention recently, when it was auctioned at Christie's Beverly Hills. It continues to be sold to private estates, corporate collections, and galleries throughout the world.

My Collector friend chose this gorgeous mixed media photographic piece to hang in her flat

Since moving to New York recently, the piece of art now sits, pride of place in the NY apartment. It’s so wonderful when collaborations like this just fall into place
