The first and longest running art show in the Blue Mountains, which helped establish the Blue Mountains’ reputation as an arts hub and recognised city of the arts’, will once again showcase the best established and emerging talent in the area from August 2 to 4.
Co-ordinated by Springwood High School Parents and Citizens Association, 25 per cent of all sales (admission, café, raffle and artworks) used to buy educational resources.
A wonderful indoor activity option, the art show is an opportunity to invest in affordable quality art and explore the lower Blue Mountains (the school is just around the corner from Norman Lindsay Gallery and Museum, the Corridor of Oaks trees planted by Australian prime ministers and the grave of Father of Federation Sir Henry Parkes).
Visitors can snag a world-class piece from a mature artist or make a shrewd long-term investment from fresh talent, selecting from approximately 400 pieces of original art from more than 100 predominantly local artists.
The art show will also include a range of quality artisan crafts such as leather handbags, jewellery, woodwork and textiles. Student artwork and artisan pieces which have traditionally attracted critical acclaim will be prominently displayed and for sale.
All tickets $0 - AUD20 Friday night (includes supper and drinks). Over-18's event.
Free entry Saturday and Sunday
