Calling all Entries for the Wild About Wooli ArtShow 2022!
The Wooli Artists Gathering (WAG) has reconvened to make preparations for the Wild About Wooli ArtShow for 2022. We enjoyed a record number of entries and artists in 2021 and now seek to invite all to enter the 2022 exhibition.
Despite needing to stage the event in a Covid 19 safe environment, the committee rallied to the challenge. While we cannot be certain of the requirements for staging the event in 2022, we will nevertheless work towards our Official Opening Night on Friday 15th April 2022.
We have once again booked the Wooli Community Hall, located adjacent the Tennis Courts, and
opposite the Wooli Bowls Club. It is a great space centrally located in the village.
The theme of the Wild About Wooli ArtShow in 2022 is “SHOW US WHAT YOU ARE WILD ABOUT”. Entrance Categories, Conditions and Prizes are listed in the Entry Form.
WAG was formed in November 2010 by a group of local artists and those who have an interest in art.
The beauty and unique location of Wooli and its surrounding area has attracted many artists and stimulated people to develop their artistic talents. Before this time the growing collection of artists were seeking opportunity to gather, discuss, collaborate and support artistic endeavours. The ArtShow now provides a platform to exhibit their artwork and connect with the wider art community and the general public. Prompted by WAG members and the Protect Wooli campaign, the Wild About Wooli ArtShow is seen to be a positive way to bring attention to the talents of our local artists. Proceeds from sales at the event financially support individual artists activities, whilst also providing a donation of 20% of sale proceeds to the activities of Coastal Communities Protect Alliance – Wooli, (CCPA). Primarily these funds go towards the protection of our coastal dune system. For more information regarding CCPA visit ww.protectwooli.com.au
Whether you are one of our previous exhibiting artists, or aspire to enter for the first time, are a collector of art, or a member of our community interested in organizing the event from behind the scenes, there is a place for you to be involved. Professional and amateur artists alike are welcome to exhibit. The Wooli School children also display their work. The new Youth Category now offers
incentive for our emerging artists.

5 categories, Painting; Drawing/Print Making; Sculpture/Ceramics; Textile Art; & finally
Photography; the Youth Category Award, and School Children’s Prize category. The People’s Choice
