Ephemeral art trail starts on long weekend
The Pearl Beach Arboretum Ephemeral Art Trail will be held from the June long weekend, from Saturday, June 11, going to the end the public school holidays on Sunday, July 17.
"The Trail aims to create inspiring temporary public art that promotes nature conservation, supports community identity and increases the cultural vibrancy," said arboretum secretary Ms Mary Knaggs.
"There will be a small number of side events such as workshops in ephemeral art and a musical afternoon on Saturday, July 9.
About 20 artists or art co-operatives have entered works in PBEAT 2022.
There will be a first prize of $3000, a runner-up prize of $1000, together with a People's Choice award of $1000.
"The inaugural PBEAT 2021 was a great success and gave the community a lot of joy during the Covid restrictions.
"People were able to appreciate art and nature while walking through the 5.5 hectares of the Arboretum, featuring 19 exhibits from artists, and seven community installations."
