Ephemeral Art Trail to open for a month

The Pearl Beach Ephemeral Art Trail will be held in the Cromellin Native Arboretum at Pearl Beach from Saturday, September 16, until Sunday, October 15.

The free public display of 20 ephemeral artworks will be open during daylight hours.

"Over 20 artists have agreed to construct highly creative works based on our theme Nurture and Nature," said Arboretum secretary Ms Mary Knaggs.

"The Ephemeral Art Trail aims to create inspiring temporary public art that promotes nature conservation, supports community identity and increases the cultural vibrancy.

"Community and artist installations inspired by the local environment of Pearl Beach and the Woy Woy Peninsula have been chosen through an 'expression of interest' process.

"We suggest you park near the Pearl Beach Tennis Courts via Opal Close where toilets are also available," she said.

Prizes will be awarded and people attending may vote for the People's Choice Award.

On weekends the Arboretum Cottage will feature nature inspired workshops and local artists displaying their works.

There will also be music and theatre performances.

Workshops range in price from $15 to $300 per person.

All are invited to the official opening at 2:30 pm on Saturday, September 23, featuring a smoking ceremony, free live bush music and refreshments in return for a donation.

The winners will be announced at this opening, with the exception of the People's Choice Award which will be announced on Saturday, October 7.

The Pearl Beach Art Fair will be held in the Arboretum from 9am to 6pm on Sunday, October 1.

More than 25 local artists and artisans will have stalls on the day offering a selection of art, cards, jewellery, handicrafts, ceramics, pottery, clothing and sculptures.

The Arboretum, established in Pearl Beach since 1976, is a natural botanic garden open to the public for free.

"Our Arboretum is a sanctuary for rare and threatened plant species, spanning 5.5 hectares of land in the Pearl Beach community."

No domestic animals, fires, barbecues or smoking are allowed in the Arboretum except with special permission.
