This business is extremely well stocked and you would be hard-pressed not to find what you are looking for, or a more comprehensive supply of art equipment and accessories anywhere in the Wide Bay. From canvas to art paper, pencils, pens, pastels, crayons, calligraphy, acrylic, oil and watercolour paints, how-to books, illustrations, stencils, palette knives, brushes, sponges, cleaning products, the gallery has the lot and prides itself in being one of the most popular online art material supply stores.

Along with this service given to customers, if you are wanting to have a print framed or reframed, Wide Bay Gallery is the place to come. Again, a substantial number of colours and designs in frames is displayed on a wall in the gallery. With many years' experience in framing, Bette can help you decide on the best frame for your painting or print.
Plenty of Frames to Choose (Author's Photo)
The reason for my visit was to ask for advice on a Darcy Doyle Artist Proof Print I own, and I was very happy with the information provided. If you are looking to purchase a print or painting, make Wide Bay Gallery your first call as many paintings adorn the walls waiting for your selection.
