The artists are part of Sydney Community Services’ ongoing community art program, which is generously sponsored by Gladesville RSL.

The program culminates in the annual pop-up gallery, which is a chance for local artists to be exhibited to the public and an opportunity for the public to buy affordable art just ahead of Christmas.

At the opening on November 20, artworks were already being bought by locals admiring creativity in paintings, organic sculptures and weavings, and craft pieces including crochet and quilting.

A magnificent quilt was also donated as a raffle prize by the highly skilled and wonderfully supportive Hunters Hill Quilters Group ( https://www.huntershillquilters.org/ ).

The space kindly was provided by Gladesville Shopping Village, exhibition screens were courtesy of Hunters Hill Council and our community art program is sponsored by a generous grant from the Gladesville RSL.

 

And of course the artists are all involved with Sydney Community Services in some way.

Thank you, everyone!
