BAAG is privileged to operate in one of the most culturally significant regions for art in Melbourne, often referred to as the Valley of the Arts. The two most important Australian art movements, the Heidelberg School and the Angry Penguins, originated in this area. Heide Museum of Modern Art, which is just across the park from BAAG is an iconic art venue.
BAAG has placed emphasis on the arts and creativity in response to this location, and also the passion of the proprietors and some staff for the arts. This has enabled us to develop a unique identity, atmosphere and experience at BAAG.
One way of furthering those aims is shown by incorporating an increasing array of artworks in the structural fabric of BAAG and adopting a creative approach everything that we do.
Bulleen Art & Garden, and the Bolin Bolin Gallery have been closed since the start of the stage 4 lockdown, but, we have lots and lots of art & craft by many local artists & craftspeople waiting for our doors to open again (October 19??? fingers crossed). We also expect a lot of new works from artists who have been busy in lockdown.
Work from Lockdown – Ceramic sculpture by Meredith Plain
Colourful, quirky ceramic sculpture and paintings by Ann Maree Gentile
Figurative Sculpture and cyanotypes by Susan Davies
Also, mosaic urns by Mary McMahon and printed plates by Sandi Nikolaides and Annette Nobes.
A gallery as part of a garden centre is a great way to bring art, and individually crafted products to a wide range of people who would not normally visit an art gallery, as well as giving local artists an outlet for their products. We are looking for proposals for new, interesting and varied exhibitions for 2021.
Nicola is one of our regular artists, both exhibiting often and commissioned to design and make the sculptural elements which give character to both our Sculpture Garden (http://gallery.baag.com.au/?p=3479) and the Bolin Bolin Gallery itself.

We have set up our Summer/Christmas exhibition, filling the Bolin Bolin Gallery (and the Garden Gallery and shop) with lots of new work from some of our favourite artists and also some new artists.
