As 2011 rolled in, it brought with it big changes for Breathing Colours. After 3 years, Chloe Waddell, the founder of Breathing Colours, has handed over the reins as she heads off onto new adventures in life! She has created an amazing gallery space and will be missed and we wish her the of best luck in her future endeavours.
This leads us to the introduction of Breathing Colours' (BC) new owner, Jessica Page! Coming from a background in contemporary jewellery (completed her B.V.A. at Sydney College of the Arts majoring in Jewellery and Object Design), Jess is a practicing jewellery artist as well as previously working as gallery and education assistant at Object Gallery, Sydney. She is enjoying her new role as gallery owner and director of Breathing Colours and hopes to "bring emerging and established Australian artists to the forefront and bridge the gap between commercial and artist run galleries."
With a new owner, come new pieces available in the BC gallery retail store. Originally known for its strong contemporary jewellery basis, the store is broadening its collection by introducing more glassware, ceramics and textile works by Sarah O' Sullivan, little luv and Karen Cunningham, to name a few.
We are excited to keep you up to date on this blog, with weekly posts about: our artists, new works in the store and of course our fortnightly exhibitions. Hope you all have a Happy Easter!
Breathing Colours Gallery, located at 446 Darling Street Balmain, showcases a new exhibition every two weeks.
Here you will find both group and solo shows in a variety of media from contemporary jewellery and objects through to large scale sculptures, paintings and prints.
Alongside the gallery, our permanent retail space showcases over 50 of our favourite Australian artists, designers and makers. Buy an original artwork from our extensive display, commission a unique piece from one of our many artists, or simply have a browse and enjoy the creative atmosphere .
