Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

The Director and staff of Jayes Gallery wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
During 2008, we have made a number of changes at Jayes and defined the exhibition spaces into more focussed areas.

The Main Gallery now has an exhibition program in place for 2009-2010 of regular solo shows for career and professional artists. The stable is strong with representation from well known and highly recognised regional artists of note.

The Smalls Gallery, adjoining the Main, will run a series of solo shows from new and emerging artists in conjunction with the openings for the Main Gallery. This will provide valuable exposure to these artists and assist them to build their career in a positive way.

The Cafe Gallery will continue to exhibit the works of local artists, works that have great appeal as affordable works for that special gift or a memento of your journey to Molong and the Central West.

The Sculpture Garden will be further developed and host a range of sculpture exhibitions throughout 2009. We look forward to this as being an exciting new sculpture space which inspires and pleases.

During 2009, we are looking to sourcing the best creative works from silversmiths, potters, jewellery makers and other specialist crafts people as we continue to build the gallery as a regional art space for all. If you are, or know of, a jeweller or craftsperson, then please invite them to see us at the gallery.

Our first craftsman is Kevin Watts, Woodturner with a very smart collection of woodware for the discerning collector or buyer. An example of Kevin's work here below.......
