Special Event

On the Nose - New Spectacles by Johannes Kuhnen

Special opening event on the 7 November at 5.30pm as part of Design Canberra at Eye Candy.

The new spectacle range by Johannes Kuhnen, exclusive to Eye Candy in Braddon, Canberra.

Johannes Kuhnen has been making spectacle frames since 1989, initially this was in part due to his own needs.

His work has now developed into wearable bespoke spectacles. As with previous titanium collections, the new designs continue the reduced language and innovation as well as being highly collectable.

This collection is exclusively available at Eye Candy in Braddon.

Bilk in 2020

Finishing the decade in Manuka!


Bilk has been proudly representing and supporting artists since 1999. 

It has been a tremendous period, with countless memorable exhibitions, amazing artists and discerning clients. We have met and made life-long friends and are grateful to those who have supported us, but it is time for us to have a break.


Our current lease in Manuka is expiring at the end of February and we are using this opportunity at the start of the new decade to take some time to focus and concentrate on our own studio work.


Our last exhibition in Manuka will be opening next year in late January. It will be a solo exhibition by Carlier Makigawa. 

Carlier had one of the first exhibitions at Bilk, twenty years ago, so it is wonderful to have our last show in Manuka with her!

Marian Hosking - Gardens

31 July - 31August 2019

Bilk Gallery is once again thrilled be hosting an exciting new exhibition of work by one of Australia’s Living Treasures, Marian Hosking.

Wild, home and sea gardens are the source of the selected elements in the current work presented by Marian in Gardens.
Hosking says “Moving to the Mornington Peninsula just two years ago and travelling in North West Western Australia recently has informed my choice of imagery and materials”.

Carlier Makigawa


Please join us for the final exhibition in Manuka, Linked - Carlier Makigawa. Carlier had one of the first exhibitions at Bilk, twenty years ago, so it is wonderful to have our last show in Manuka with her.  This exhibition combines work from her Delirious In Uzbekistan collection and pieces never exhibited in Australia before.  


A catalogue and price list is available upon request.
