Art is one of lifes’ greatest pleasures and we of the Gold Coast, are lucky enough to be surrounded by exceptional makers, galleries and of course, their art.
Gold Coast art galleries have been opening on the regular for the last little while and it’s very exciting to watch the creations that emerge to fill them.
The latest of which is pop-up gallery BAM!, which not only boasts the perfect name for a gallery that is popping up but is also a sweet new spot for spying and also purchasing new pieces to make your home (and your life) prettier.
BAM! Pop-Up Gallery opened a little while on the highway in Mermaid Beach and it’s an intimate little space showcasing the work of local, national and international sculptors, painters and photographers.
There’s art drawn on skateboards, art designed to bring issues like body image to life, surrealism, nude portraits, all of the things.
We’ve already found five pieces we’d love to have, so you better get in quick before we buy everything.
Not only all of that though, the gallery recently held an auction with works donated by well-known artists like Craig Ruddy, Blak Douglas and Abbey McCulloch with over $200k donated to bushfire relief.
So that’s pretty amazing.
A whole new collection was added just this week so there’s plenty of exceptional art you’re going to want in your home.
BAM! Popup Gallery is open until the end of February so make sure you get in there as soon as possible to grab yourself some new art and maybe learn a thing or two while you’re at it.
