Bays art show is planned for July

The annual Bays Art Show is scheduled to take place at The Bays Community Hall, Woy Woy Bay, over the weekend of July 20-21.

Group president Ms Cathy Gleeson said the show was a highlight of The Bays' calendar year and that the 2019 show was shaping up to be one of the best ones yet.

Opening night will take place at the community hall from 7:30pm on July 19.

"We have again secured six talented local artists to exhibit at this year's show and we have also welcomed boutique winery, Strawhouse Wines, who will be showcasing some of their wines over the weekend," Ms Gleeson said.

Over the coming weeks, the group will be releasing details of each feature artist two at a time in the lead-up to opening night.

Ms Meg Lewer and Mr Walter Koppen were the first two artists on the bill to be revealed.

"Meg is an Australian contemporary artist working with the medium of alcohol inks," Ms Gleeson said.

"She grew up in Brewarrina, a small town on the banks of the Barwon River and home to the 40,000 year old aboriginal fish traps.

"Meg's paintings are worked with a combination of small brush strokes and an interplay of the Inks running across the surface of the board.

"She endeavours to create artworks which celebrate the beauty of nature, to capture a mood and image which reflects her responses to places she has been or seen," Ms Gleeson said.

Born in Holland, Mr Koppen emigrated to Australia in 1992 and has been living on the Central Coast since 2005.

Ms Gleeson said Mr Koppen had always admired the diverse colours and grain in timber, but it wasn't until 2012 that he had the opportunity to try his hand at woodturning.

"Following the curves and textures of the piece enhances the visual pleasure of the finished work."

Ms Gleeson said Mr Koppen found discovering the beauty within a lump of wood and transforming to be gratifying.

Ms Gleeson said volunteers were welcome to help in the lead-up to opening night and over the show weekend.
