Final days to see stunning local artwork

Final days to see stunning local artwork

Tuesday, December 12, 2023

Don’t miss your chance to see more than 120 captivating artworks as part of the City of Whittlesea 18th Annual Art Exhibition, The Webs We Weave, with the exhibition coming to a close this Friday, 15 December.


Since its opening last month, more than 700 people have visited the exhibition, immersing themselves in this year's theme. The theme, which invited artists to delve into the intricate web of connections that shape their lives, sparked reflections on local and personal connections, cultural influences, and the tangible and intangible threads that bind us together.


The response received from local artists across the City of Whittlesea was nothing short of phenomenal, resulting in the contribution of a range of artworks from almost 100 local artists, showcasing their remarkable creative talents.


Beyond being a platform for artists to share their creations, the Annual Art Exhibition plays a crucial role in connecting artists with fellow creative individuals, programs, and places within our community. It is a testament to the profound impact of art in fostering connections and building community, as well as nurturing the growth and potential of emerging talents.


One of the newcomers to this year’s exhibition, Bettina Purdie, a local resident, emphasised the significance of social inclusion and connection through art.


"This year, I've submitted to the Annual Art Exhibition for the first time. I think it's important that as many creatives from the area as possible become involved, to encourage the building of the networks in the area. Art is important for social inclusion, connectivity, and cohesion, and the more people that we can get involved, the better," Bettina said.


This cherished event, an integral part of the Council's arts and cultural program, continues to flourish, attracting the attention of our passionate and talented creative community.


The exhibition is hosted in the Great Hall at the City of Whittlesea Civic Centre in South Morang, and will close its doors on Friday 15 December. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to view the diverse talents and creativity of our local artists.


Admission is free, and visitors can explore the artworks on weekdays from 10am to 4pm.
