We love art and Sydney's latest art gallery offering has us super excited!

A collective of 13 Sydney artists have recently opened a new gallery space, ‘Sydney Road Gallery’ on 7 June in Seaforth which disrupts the traditional gallery model of showcasing and selling artworks.

The collective are accomplished mid-level exhibiting visual artists from disciplines including painting, printmaking, textiles and sculptural basketry, who have come together to jointly open and manage a combined gallery space.

Sydney Road Gallery objective is to create a business around relationships: artists with artists, artists with customers and artists with stylists and interior designers.

Fiona Chandler who came up with the idea for the gallery said, “Artists are collaborators, it takes many people to see original artworks on walls. We want to acknowledge the coming together of patrons as well as stylists, interior designers and architects who create a unique and aesthetically beautiful space place to live and work.”

“What we wanted to create is a conversation, developing relationships with the people that buy our works.”

“Every artist in the collective see buyers of art as patrons of the arts rather than simply a transaction. When you spend hours or even months creating a piece, each painting or sculpture has a story woven into it.”

“We want to tell those stories to our ‘patrons’ and the people who change spaces with our art such as stylists and interior designers. The feeling that comes from making something and then seeing that made item in a living or work space, and knowing that it was specifically chosen, can be life changing for an artist.”

The gallery will feature a diversity of artwork that will inspire and appeal to interior designers and art lovers alike, including paintings, textiles, sculptural and wall hanging pieces to suit different tastes, themes and settings. The works will change every two weeks.

The Finding Quiet Series by Mini Grandi Artist...

We love Mini Grandi Artist and her new series 'Finding Quiet' is none other than gorgeous. 

The inspiration behind her newest print range ‘Finding Quiet’ was her discovery that through being kind to herself she had gained acceptance and subsequent inner friendship. The quiet that filled her was the gift that she had given herself.

"This is so painfully obvious but something we don’t necessarily always see that clearly or even remember as sometimes that inner negative voice creeps into your mind discouraging you. I only discovered it’s importance since starting mini Grandi Artist almost 2 years ago. My days are now often a lot happier since learning to be kind to myself and taking consistent moments of quiet time for self care."

"I discovered stillness through meditation early on in my art journey but have come to realise that I now don’t have to search for it like I once did as it has quite simply found me and has become an established part of my life.  I live my days often with inner quiet and a resounding feeling of calm that helps me enjoy the process of each day as well as getting me through difficult situations.  Finding Quiet is something I always yearned for unconsciously but never knew how to reach until I was there. With this series I wish to inspire you with how I found my inner quiet through acceptance and kindness."

The Finding Quiet series is a collection of 4 fine art giclée prints ranging in size from A4 to A1 all printed using archival, non fading inks on heavy German etching watercolour paper.
