Wooli Artist Gathering (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. For those interested in joining our group please get in touch. This is a great opportunity to be part of a local event welcoming regulars and visitors to Wooli alike.
Prompted by WAG members and the “Protect Wooli” campaign, the Wild About Wooli ArtShow is not only a positive way to bring attention to the talents of our local artists, but also a fundraiser for Coastal Communities Protect Alliance – Wooli (CCPA). A 20% commission is charged on the sale of artwork. These funds go towards the protection of our coastal dune system. For more information regarding CCPA visit www.protectwooli.com.au
Whether you are one of our previous exhibiting artists, entering for the first time, are a collector of art, or a member of our community interested in organizing the event, 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 Youth Category offers incentive for our emerging artists.
There are various prizes to be awarded including Best of Show; Highly Commended for each of 6 categories: Painting; Drawing/Print Making; Sculpture/Ceramics; Textile Art; Photography; and Mixed Media; the Youth Category Award; and School Children’s Prize category. The People’s Choice Award is decided by popular vote and is announced at the close of the show.
Artist or not, come along, enjoy the Opening Night social gathering with a drink and BBQ and admire the works of our talented coastal community. Tickets available at the door, opening from 6.30pm Friday 29th March 2024. For more information refer to the Public Invitation 2024.
