The Art House has been recognised for its valuable contribution to arts and culture and high quality programs by taking out two of the top accolades in the Business Wyong 2022 Annual Business Awards.

The performing arts centre in Wyong was named Business of the Year and also picked up the award for Excellence in Large Business. 

The Art House Executive Director, Anne-Marie Heath said it was an honour to receive these awards for excellence from the local business community.

“Our team is very proud and grateful to receive Business Wyong’s Excellence in Large Business Award, but most of all we were completely surprised and excited to have also received the main award of Business of the Year,” she said.

“It is very rewarding that The Art House is recognised for its service to the community as an arts organisation but as also for our business operations.

“These awards are reflective of the wonderful Art House staff and their contribution and commitment in ensuring the Art House is shining in every moment, and the great support of the Board,” Heath said.

The Art House is owned by Council and managed by an independent not-for-profit entity with an independent board of directors.

Council Administrator, Rik Hart said he was delighted for the team on their well-deserved wins. 

“The success of The Art House creates a ripple effect of economic benefits for our community with the provision of local jobs, which leads to more local business spending, and support to surrounding hospitality businesses from audiences that come from near and far,” he said.

Other distinguished awards at the Business Wyong presentation night on July 21 included the Kevin Faulks Award received by Peter Rubin of Prestige Wedding and Event Hire.

Spot Go took out three awards – Excellence in Innovation; Outstanding Employee to Natasha Valentine and Outstanding Business Leader to Brendan Small.

Other awards were: Outstanding Young Business Leader, Beth O’Toole of Refreshing Pools; Outstanding Community Organisation, Southlakes Incorporated; Excellence in Micro Business, Quick Fix Solar & Electrical; and Excellence in Small Business, Tumbi Tyres & More.

President Matt Lusted said the Business Wyong awards were a celebration of the amazing and resilient businesses in the northern growth corridor.

“Congratulations to all the winners and we thank them and all our nominees for their involvement in the program and their continued support of our local business community,” he said.

“Business Wyong also thanks our 2022 awards sponsors, our major event partner Delta Electricity, event host Wyong Race Club and our category sponsors Battery World Wyong, Central Coast Unity Bank, Coastline Cleaning & Maintenance, Community Bank Wyong, Ideal Future and Jendar Interior Designs.”
