ART.AND…‘Discover Something New’

ART.AND…‘Discover Something New’

To be held over two weekends in September 2021 (4-5, 11-12)

Despite COVID-19 still confining us to our borders, Australians are venturing out more and more locally.  In this spirit of exploration, this new event will focus on the Australian spirit of discovery. The Arthouse Pavilion Gallery, nestled in its bushland paradise, will showcase an eclectic collection of paintings, ceramics, textiles, jewellery, sculpture as well as hand-made and unique collectables in resin and wood.  Under the wing of ArtistsAnd Incorporated, a not-for-profit organisation, the exhibition will bring together 10 contemporary artists from a range of disciplines celebrating their craft as part of a dual weekend art festival this September.

ART.AND… ‘Discover Something New’ will let visitors discover the beauty , the country air and stunning views from the gallery, meet the creators in person and purchase original and handmade original pieces (over a thousand pieces from which to choose) directly from the artists on the day.

In 2021, ART.AND… ‘Discover Something New’ will invite visitors to embark on a personal journey of discovery where they can sign up for a range of art courses (held after the event) to discover art techniques and skills from the artists exhibiting whose hands paint , hammer, twist, bend, fire, print and weld. Perhaps you would like to learn how to carve a Cherrywood bowl like an old fashioned bodger using a traditional pole lathe or create a cyanoprint of native botanicals just as architects of old created blueprints of their drawings!

Visitors can further discover the unique surrounding area in the Hills District – from picking fruit from local farms or discovering the  Great North Walk created by our early settlers. For those merely interested in a leisurely journey of discovery, our area is home to numerous wonderful restaurants using local produce or picnic areas where you can discover a world away from the hustle and bustle of a big city, but within a half hour drive from the CBD!

The event is a registered COVID-19 safe event. Tickets are free. Register now or on the day.
