Local shops will display the works of 40 acclaimed Australian artists this month, for the third annual Mosman Art Walk, taking place on Military Rd.
This year, the unique art trail and Mosman High fundraiser is set to showcase paintings by the likes of Ken Done, Ann Cape, Rhett Brewer and Ian Grant.
“Members of the public are welcome to stroll Mosman’s main shopping precinct at any time to see original artworks displayed in local businesses, from bookshops to jewellery stores, travel agents to toy sellers, pharmacies to fashion boutiques, dry cleaners to florists,” organiser Ann King told Mosman Collective.
Works will be on display from February 23 to March 12, with proceeds going to Mosman High School.
All artworks are for sale, with 30 per cent of proceeds donated to support Mosman High School’s renowned art program, and 70 per cent going directly to the artist.
“Our aim in 2021 was to create an event that would not only support our school, but local businesses and artists, who were severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic,” Ms. King said.
“The Art Walk has been embraced so whole-heartedly by the local community that it has become an annual cultural highlight, supported by our Gold Sponsor, local firm Kelly+Partners Chartered Accountants, who are passionate about the vital role of arts and culture in enriching communities.
“We look forward to welcoming people to Mosman again in 2023 to explore our local village as they follow the Art Walk, enjoying all the diverse art on show, from painting to sculptures to ceramics. There is no pressure to buy but if you like what you see, the works can be purchased on the spot via QR code.”
