Bali Gallery

Wednesday, August 27, 2008

Bali is known as a treasure-house of interesting goods, splendid local hand woven materials, silver and gold works, wood carvings and many other handicrafts in attractive displays.

Agung Rai Gallery Jl. Raya Peliatan, Ubud, Gianyar Ubud Phone: 975449
Representing a community of artists, this gallery offers paintings of some of Indonesia's best young artists.

Andy's Gallery Jl. Raya Br. Taman Kerobokan No. 15 Kuta
Offers an eclectic mix of furniture and carvings nicely displayed on two levels. Includes both antique and reproduction furniture. Has an attractive wedding chest.

Galeri Keris Galleria Nusa Dua Phone: 771303
Open daily 9am - 10pm. If you're looking for a one-stop shop for all your arts and crafts needs, this is the place to visit. Also known as the Indonesian Handicraft Centre and Department Store, Galeri Keris has a wide selection of arts, crafts, and clothes that make inexpensive and fun gifts. A good place to kill a half hour checking out prices and choices.

Asmat Kamoro Jl. Patih Jelantik 175 Kuta Phone: 755-625
Located on the corner near Jl. Majapahit, you can't miss this shop; it has a character of its own. This very crowded and cramped shop specializes in tribal artifacts from Irian Jaya. While you can find lots of junk here, if you dig enough, you may find an occasional treasure. Look for long carved Asmat poles, shields, drums, penis sheaths, axes, and bows and arrows.

Bamboo Gallery Main Road Ubud Phone: 975037
Representing many of Bali's most promising young artists, this gallery is less traditional and more innovative than most other galleries in Bali.
