Art Group Publishing History with Beside The Wave Gallery

Many art cards and posters are available for sale across the world with the names of artists John Dyer and Joanne Short together with the 'Beside The Wave Gallery' name, which were published by the Art Group in London and are licensed to the artists. Artists John Dyer and Ted Dyer founded Beside The Wave Gallery in 1989, but the business was sold several years later.

The publishing range of 'Beside The Wave' items associated with artists John Dyer and Joanne Short became hugely popular in the late 1990s and sold hundreds of thousands of copies a year across the globe making the artists' names synonymous with the gallery. Many homes across the world will have copies of these posters hung on their walls.

The Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust has a number of these famous posters that were donated by the artists and framed by the Friends of the Hospital. The Audiology department has a very good display of these and a plaque commemorating the artist's gift of the John Dyer-Beside The Wave Gallery Poster range.

The posters can be purchased in their new updated forms from The John Dyer Gallery or in their original forms by searching the internet.

The John Dyer Gallery provides continuity and a professional point of contact for collectors of the artists' work.

We have included below a selection of the many posters distributed globally via Habitat, the Art Group and Poster Shops. Many of these posters are still available and many hundreds of thousands are still in circulation making John Dyer and Joanne Short two of the world's best known contemporary artists.
