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

(you may need to wait a few moments for the photos to upload)

New work

It’s always fun when a new batch of artwork arrives from an artist, and opening the bubble-wrap feels like Christmas. This week we had two such deliveries, with new work from Chitra Merchant and Anna Harley. Both prolific screen printers, it’s always a delight when they turn up at the gallery with new images to show. Time for a Tuesday re-hang!  Here some of the screen prints we now have ready to exhibit:

Bravo Anna Harley

Well done to Anna Harley for selling over 20 prints at the Affordable art fair in Hampstead! It seems her series on trees is a particularly popular subject matter for the residents of Hampstead, plus they are absolutely beautiful screen prints of course, with subtle tones and a few soft metallics thrown in. We just love them - I think we need a re-stock!

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!

Art Fairs 2016

As 2016 draws to a close, I thought I’d mention a few of our favourite images from the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea and Bristol this year.  2016 saw a real increase in contemporary mixed-media art at the Bristol show this year compared to last year,  and the Battersea show was incredible as usual, with really inspiring works of art. Here are a few faves:
