WAG TIME AGAIN….FOR THE 7TH YEAR!
The Wooli Artists Gathering (WAG) is again holding the Wild About Wooli ArtShow. WAG, which was formed in November 2010, is composed of people connected with Wooli who are artists, or have an interest in art.
The beauty and unique location of Wooli and its surrounding area have attracted many artists and stimulated people to develop their artistic talents. However this growing collection of artists remained largely invisible. Prompted by the Protect Wooli campaign, it was thought important to draw positive attention to the value of Wooli, by collecting and widely promoting Wooli ‘s artist community. Those who attend meetings and express interest in the Gathering ‘s aims are members. There is no membership charge or criteria, except for involvement or interest in artistic endeavours. The exhibition has been held every year since 2011.
The 2017 Wild About Wooli ArtShow will present exhibits of regional artists including paintings, works on paper, sculptures, textile art, mixed media and photography.
Ian Rees has once again generously provided the venue for the show at the Wooli Hotel Motel.
It opens with a cocktail party on Friday 14th of April 2017 at 6.30pm and continues on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th April.
All the details you’ll need for the show are here in the Invitation to Artists and in the Public Invitation.
Professionals and amateurs alike are welcome to exhibit – artists, photographers and those who like to experiment with other media.
Children ‘s works will also be displayed, so get painting, kids.
A People ‘s Choice prize will be awarded and there are prizes for various categories.
Last year ‘s exhibition was another resounding success and many sales were made.
Artist or not, come along and enjoy a drink and a nibble and admire the works of our talented coastal community. One may even end up on your wall. As in previous years, a donation from proceeds will be made to CCPA-Wooli, the community-based group working with government to develop protection strategies for Wooli beach.
Join us for a fun and inspirational evening.
