Plexus Gallery is a Brisbane-based commercial art gallery representing a collection of independent visual artists. The gallery was started at the end of 2019 by Sona Babajanyan and Billy Shannon in an effort to rethink the commercial gallery paradigm. In 2021 we invited Chris Macpherson to join our organisational team, as they proven to be invaluable over our last few projects. We run primarily as an online space augmented by organising ‘pop-up’ physical shows, both here in Brisbane and overseas.
Our artists are both represented by us and independent, as we do not ask any exclusivity to their representation. We are here to support the talented people that we work with, but also to help create a healthy and active creative ecosystem for all artists and galleries in Brisbane.
‘Plexus’ means a network, a complex structure containing an intricate network of parts. And likewise, we are very interested in networking to nurture the creative life of Brisbane. Our philosophy is to creatively gather together to grow, and we feel that by working together, we can all benefit from a stronger and more varied artistic milieu.
We want to bring people together, we want to create a vibrant creative community and share our passion for art and creativity, be a platform for nurturing creative life and thought. We want you to discover new artists and the work that will make your hearts sing! And we want to make it as easy and enjoyable as possible.
Sometimes buying art online can be tricky. Who knows how accurate the colours are, can you trust your monitor? What if you don’t like it in life? We have instigated a “View at Home Before You Buy” feature to bring your selected artworks to your office or home for viewing in your own environment and if needed help you with your choices.
For more information on this concept, see our Art to your home page.
In addition to this personalised service, we can refer the art lover to some of Brisbane’s best interior designers, picture framers and art installers.
