Waterline Art Gallery

Gallery will offer new dimension for art

Local artist – Artisan Network - Art Prize

Art Exhibitions on the Central Coast will have a new dimension: The Waterline Art Gallery Ettalong Beach at the Re:Publik Café will exhibit work from local artists including potterers, and sculptors. The gallery is a partnership between the café and the established art incorporation ‘The Makers Studio’ (TMS).

The first exhibition is already on the walls in the café, ‘Waterline 2’ follows the much talked about ‘Waterline’ exhibition, a success just before Christmas. Waterline 2 follows the perfect formula: local artists, local images – at affordable prices.

TMS President Cheryl McCoy: “We want to create a gallery to encourage local and new emerging artists to exhibit on the Central Coast. We also want to assist artists in developing greater skills and offer support during their careers.”

Together with Re:Publik Café we want to build a strong network of artisans on the Central Coast.

On the ‘canvas’ is also the offer in conjunction with the NSW Minister for Arts the offer of an art prize. Categories will be determined later in the year, but one award will be for a ‘Young Artist’.

“We needed this new approach” said café owner Catherine McDonald, “and it took only two meeting with the committee of the ‘Makers Studio’ to reach an agreement and the immediate future with

exhibition plans is a very electrifying offering for the Central Coast. Together with the expertise of Cheryl McCoy and her committee, we will now strongly focus again on local artist – there is an excellent abundance of work available.

Because of the success of ‘Waterline’, the work showing in ‘Waterline 2’ is even more distinct. The café is open seven days from 8.30am.

Special viewings can be arranged by appointment (4311 6842).
