Explore the 'Neighbourhoods Art Trail' through Long Jetty
'Neighbourhoods Art Trail x Long Jetty' incorporates three creative initiatives - Creation in Isolation, Changing Faces and Q&A at the Savoy - to give locals and visitors the chance to explore and appreciate original artworks in local businesses from Thursday 17 June to Saturday 19 June.
Central Coast Council Director Community and Recreation Services, Julie Vaughan said 'Neighbourhoods Art Trail x Long Jetty' will see the work of established local artists featured at many of Long Jetty's favourite venues and shops along The Entrance Road.
"Long Jetty has become a creative mecca on the Coast and it is the perfect location for locals and visitors to enjoy creative expression," Ms Vaughan said.
"COVID-19 has impacted all our lives in so many ways and 'Creation in Isolation' is a series of poignant works that explore the impact of isolation during this unprecedented time.
"Long Jetty has a colourful history and 'Changing Faces' celebrates the people that have shaped the area over the years.
"The official exhibition opening on Thursday 17 June features 'Q&A at the Savoy' - a unique opportunity to hear a panel of local creative entrepreneurs share how 'place' influences their work and the success and failure that has come from pursuing their passion."
Council Administrator, Rik Hart said 'Neighbourhoods Art Trail x Long Jetty' is an opportunity to experience art, explore Long Jetty and reflect on a shared experience through a unique time.
"This community-led initiative connects our creative community to local businesses and provides new spaces for their work to be showcased and explored," Mr Hart said.
"Locals and visitors will see art combined with the wonderful food and retail experiences Long Jetty has to offer and have yet another reason to head to this bohemian pocket of the Coast."
'Neighbourhoods Art Trail x Long Jetty' is exhibited in Long Jetty businesses along The Entrance Road from Thursday 17 June to Saturday 19 June 2021.
The exhibition opening event - 'Q&A at the Savoy' - on Thursday 17 June features panellists Kaye Harrison (Documentary Film Maker), Xanthe Highfield (Interior Designer), Luke Shadbolt (Photographer) and Morgan Mcglone (Chef and Entrepreneur).
