A Creative S'well. On tour with our favourite things to our favourite places.
Dwell On Tour
There's nothing better than grabbing your favourite people (and things) and heading off on a road trip to the most inspiring creative places.
Spring is a dandy time to pack a basket of treats, dust off the push bike and do just that. So here's our (start!) list of favourite creative hot spots between Brisbane & Northern NSW.
[ A creative S'well ... Limited Edition collaboration with Liberty of London :: SHOP the collection ]
It goes without saying we put ourselves forward as a favourite creative hotspot! We love nothing more than discovering new creative lifestyle brands, learning the story behind designers inspiration and sharing the process of bringing products to life. Dwell Store is a space that champions personal creativity and original design in all areas. Get amongst it!
LEFT BANK GALLERY
Just a week or so ago, we attended an exhibition opening at Left Bank Gallery featuring local artist, Leah Bartholemew. You may recognise her name from her recent creative collaboration with Basil Bangs! We loved popping over to the Brickworks Annex for a cheeky wine and a mingle. Left Bank Gallery is a beautiful boutique space and is a great go to if you're on the hunt for local, contemporary art.
[ Happy Socks on Tour :: SHOP the collection ]
Gosh darn! A visit is DEFINITELY on the list this season. Opening on the 23rd November, is an exhibition featuring 200 Easton Pearson garments. It's sure to be a textural and original design treat! More details here.
And of course making the trip to Brisbane, a few hours (at least!) must always be put aside to wander the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art. The line up is always a treat. Special mention must go to the Amata women's paintings which have been exhibiting for some time. The colours are so vibrant and are just incredible to look closely at.
[ Elms & King Bowery Bag :: On Tour :: SHOP the collection ]
Closer to home again ... well, just next door to us, you'll find Gallery One. Owned by the girls at the helm of St. Barts this local gallery features some incredible names and are always setting up new visual treats in their window. We loved seeing the Ken Done exhibition filled with red dots earlier this year. Craig Parnaby, Rosetta Santuci & David Bromley are also among our favourite representations!
A teeny, ever changing contemporary art space over at Marina Mirage - we MUST mention Anthea Polson Gallery in our favourites list as she represents our VERY, VERY favourite - drum roll! - Claudio Kirac. Fondly known to us as, CK - Claudio's original works proudly feature on our in store postcards and window applications. When we're there ... Cate Maddy always seems to catch our eye also.

TWEED REGIONAL GALLERY
All this creative inspiration ... one must combine it with food. We love visiting the Tweed Regional Gallery as alongside an incredible art curation - is a (very) peaceful country drive and a lovely al fresco restaurant with the most magnificent view of the Tweed Valley. The combination of the tranquil nature setting and the unique exhibition choices by Gallery Director, Susi Muddiman provides a truly unique experience.
Art-Work agency is our creative partner and helps us out with our seasonal direction, creative photography & graphic design. Just recently they've moved to a fresh creative space off Karen Avenue in Mermaid Beach. Alas, the studio is not (yet!) open to the public ... but a buzzing creative hotspot never the less! If you're visiting the Karen Avenue gallery space - or other creatives in the area - knock on their door and say hi!
[ The AWA gals - Emma & Laura - SHOP Frank Green ]
One of the best things about being around art, artists and other creative people is the positive impact it has on your mind.
Creativity encourages you to consider things from new perspectives and consider other's interpretations.
We love supporting creativity in people and the ideas that flow when you do.
