Well, after a very quiet 2015, this year has been wonderful by comparison for 2016! Quite exciting to see more expensive paintings and sculptures selling really well! Lots of artists, including me inspired to paint more, knowing more sales around the corner. The gallery feels more vibrant and we are getting more quality work in, continually, to replace sold stock.
The fabulous chicken wire sculptures by Ivan Lovatt, are creating a riot, as visitors spot a giant lion or wolf, from the s...Read Full Post »

2014 is here and so is our fourth anniversay of the three shops, 'Capanart Gallery', Tamborine Living (homewares) and 'Two Birds & A Teacup', which has now been bought by new business owner, Tracey-Lee Napier, who has exciting and fresh business ideas.
The gallery has steadily and quietly built up a following of clients and new visitors who repeatedly say what a great selection of quality works we have on offer. We have a few new artists and I have also been experimenting in a loos...Read Full Post »

This year has flown and we are now enjoying our busiest time on the mountain as visitors come to enjoy our fresh mountain air and rug up in their winter finery, sit by log fires with hot cuppas and comfort food or picnic and enjoy the rainforest and views. These are the best months for the gallery and we have lots of fresh new work in to tempt the visitors. Some lovely Robert Hagan works, our biggest collection ever and some by his brother starting from $350. Also ...Read Full Post »

Four years ago Paul and I were invited to dinner by friends to meet at the local pub The Fox and Hounds, and they brought a couple of other friends with them. One of these was Sonia Borde, with whom I clicked immediately and we became instant friends. From that date we emailed constantly and then would meet up for lunches and coffees and talk like there was no tomorrow.
She lived at the other end of my street and would refer to herself as 'The Northern Long Rd. correspondent...Read Full Post »

Well, we have passed the six month mark now and things are going well. We started slowly and sales have been steadily building. We have adopted a bit of a co-op style set up and share the manning of the gallery between artists allowing ourselves time to paint.

We sent out the invitations and stocked up with nice nibbles and plenty of refreshments and had a great turnout of nearly one hundred people.
The morning of that day though was difficult because we had not recieved the hanging wire for the paintings or the lighting that fitted with the trac...Read Full Post »
