With Covid-19 forcing the closure of small galleries exhibiting our work we felt it was time to create our own space, leading to barisa's Gallery and Treasure Shed. The Gallery and Treasure Shed are still under construction.
barisa's Gallery will showcase and sell our jewellery and sculptures and also have on display for sale selected creations from some of our locally based artist friends. We want it to be a place to come to for original gifts, and somewhere where people who follow our work can come and see our latest works, and discuss commissions. We are also looking to run classes in one of the two spaces, once we are sorted.
barisa's Treasure Shed will have a carefully curated selection of antique, vintage retro and modern items, ranging from original paintings, numbered prints, children's vintage toys, collectable china, sculptures, and art glass. There will also be a selection of stylish stools, cute chairs, tempting tables, interesting miniatures and very collectable collections. All items will have been individually sourced throughout New Zealand and reflect the appeal they have to us, either for their beauty, quirkiness, or simply because they caught our eye and were too appealing to leave behind.
While the buildings are under construction we have decided to offer some of the Treasure Shed's wares through this website and Facebook.
