Pittwater Artists Trail Winter Exhibition 2015 at Avalon Beach SLSC
The members of the Pittwater Artists Trail are currently running their Winter Exhibition at the wonderful new Avalon Beach Surf Club.The show features the best of the year's work by Trail artists offering painting, ceramics, flamework glass, lithographs, jewellery, encaustic painting, sculpture, and ritual objects.
The 2015 members are quite a contemporary group bringing the show an appropriate synergy with the modern architecture of the building. Recently rebuilt, the club features a beautiful exhibition space neatly positioned between its bar and restaurant which all take advantage of the spectacular 180 degree ocean views.
The exhibition began at 10am on Saturday June 6th with the official opening at 5.30pm on Saturday night. Nibbles and drinks were served with live music from Chris Raggett, and an inspiring Address by Avalon Beach Surf Life Saving Club's architect Richard Cole.
Trail artists have donated work and goodies for a multi-prize raffle in support of the Surf Club and Pittwater Artists Trail.
All work exhibited is for sale. Entry throughout the show is free and will remain open today, Sunday 7th, and Monday June 8th for the long weekend from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
