QAGOMA’s Design Market Launches Online
The Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA) launches its inaugural online Design Market from 9am this Friday 15 May.
For two weeks only, the work of more than twenty-five Queensland based designer-makers and artisans will be available from qagoma.store.
Customers can purchase products ranging from unique ceramics and jewellery, to handmade clothing and accessories, to quality homewares and more, and have them shipped straight to their door.
QAGOMA Market Coordinator Katie Themor said the Gallery’s Design Market, usually presented in the GOMA forecourt, was always a favourite with audiences.
'This year, due to the impact of COVID-19 and with both QAG and GOMA temporarily closed, we’ve moved the physical market online and remain committed to providing a space for local designers and artisans to sell their work,' Ms Themor said.
'It’s important for us to stay in touch with our customers, and to support our stallholders by helping them keep their businesses and practices afloat in this uncertain time.
'The QAGOMA Design Market is now in its 14th year, and we’re encouraging our regular and new customers to support local creators by making a special purchase online before the end of May,' Ms Themor said.
The online market will feature unique ceramics by Paper Boat Press and Shut Up and Relax, eccentric and sparkly jewellery designs by Yippy Whippy and work by many other featured artisans including: Aqua Door Designs,Bambambu, Barbara Heath, Birdy and Clementine, Chantal and Corey, Claudia de Salvo, Corner Block Studio, Denz and Co, Illys Wall, Kirralee and Co, Lovr Ceramics, Meekz Contemporary Jewellery, Paper Hands, Paperbark Love, Secret Garden Artisinal Soaps, Sewloist, Sewn, Sonia Palette Jewellery, Spun Mud, Sybella, Tangled Twine by Wren, Thea Skelsey, Touch Wood Design, Two Plums Design, Woodrock Turning and Jewellery by Xiao.
