The fourth Yarramalong Art Show will be held at Wyong Creek Hall on November 20-21 from 10am to 4pm.
Organiser, Dorothy Gliksman, promises this year’s show will be bigger and better than ever and has coordinated the works of nine professional artists to present an exhibition that celebrates the uplifting power of the beauty of nature.
“After a couple of very challenging years for us all, this show will bring much needed joy not only for the talented artists, but for all who come to visit,” Gliksman said.
“There will be works by award winning sculptors, ceramicists, and painters and an opportunity to speak with the artists about their creations.
“It will be an explosion of colour with the artists’ interpretations of their vision of birds, flowers, plants and animals.”
Gliksman held the first Yarramalong Art Show in 2014 to recognise the many brilliant artists living on the Central Coast.
“I realised how many talented artists there were living in the Central Coast,” she said.
“Our local Yarramalong Hall needed funds to keep the lovely old hall running, so why not put the two together.”
The Art Show is an important fundraiser for the historic Yarramalong School of Arts, which opened in the Yarramalong Village in 1904.
This year, the hall has undergone roof repairs due to storm damage, so the show has been moved to the nearby Wyong Creek Hall.
The proceeds will benefit the Yarramalong School of Arts and the Yarramalong Community School, which hosts community events throughout the year.
The Art Show is sponsored by local real estate agents, Shaun Coffey and Scott Wall of Stone Real Estate, Wyong.
