Artists take reins of annual Killcare art show
A group of local artists have joined forces to ensure the annual Killcare Art Show continues.
"There has been an art show at Killcare Surf Life Saving Club every summer for the last 10 years recognising the wonderful artists we have on the Central Coast," said artist and show convenor Ms Janet Hoyer-Cobb.
"With the club no longer in a position to run the show, the artists have been handed the reins to organise and run the show, rebranded as the Killcare Art Exhibition," she said.
Twenty artists have signed on for this year's show which will run for four days and present a diverse range of mediums and subject matter.
"There will be paintings in many mediums and genres, unique goods made with recycled materials, as well as works by a basket weaver, wood turner and sculptors.
"Some artists have exhibited at Killcare before while several are new.
"Many are local but all will have fresh new and vibrant works for this show," Ms Hoyer-Cobb said.
The exhibition will be held in the surf club's auditorium and open on December 27 and run from 11am to 7pm up until the 30th.
The opening night will also double as a "meet the artists" event which will run from 4pm to 7pm on the December 27.
"This exhibition will present a great opportunity to view quality artworks, have a chat with the artists or possibly buy something to revitalise your home or give as a gift," Ms Hoyer-Cobb said.
