Sometimes all you need is a gift tag – after the success of the hand drawn Xmas Gift Tag range, Ness has made a range of gift tags for other occasions. $2.50 each or a set of 6 for $15.00. The designs are original and the tags have been hand cut and hand drawn with a dab of paint in the hearts.


Lovely LoLa Purses. Ness has been having a lovely time hand painting and drawing on silk, canvas and denim fabric also. Lola sells for $25.00 each


David Innocente
David has recently begun to use acrylic in his jewellery and on the handles of his boxes. He buys the acrylic in blocks that are already set, he then cuts out the shape he wants and finishes the design from that shape. The last thing he needs to do is polish the finished piece.


What’s been happening in the T'Arts Gallery?

New display and storage drawers – We’re always striving to display our artists work in the best possible way and also ensuring that the Gallery show rooms maintain a high standard. With that in mind our Shop Display Committee has recently had new white drawers made and these were recently installed and they sit under the glass cubes that hold mainly the jeweller's work. We now have lots more storage space and the show rooms of the gallery look a lot more open and modern.

Galleria Innocente, is an exciting new Pop-Up Gallery, situated in the new Rundle Place Mall in the centre of Rundle Mall. The gallery is on the first floor, opposite the main entrance to Harris Scarfe.
This large, light, open space is a wonderfully unique gallery with a focus on gifts for men. David Innocente, the Artist in residence, creates stunningly original crafted boxes using powder coated metal, Huon pine and other special timbers.
