Driveway Art Show

Even more announcements, so late? You better believe it – and it’s all down to the fact that as a community-based event at which anyone is invited to participate, there’ll always be spontaneous surprises – even throughout the day tomorrow. If you’re wandering around tomorrow, pop past Cathy McShannon’s Driveway Art Show – it’s happening at the corner of Oak and Ash Roads from 2pm tomorrow. Thanks, Cathy!

Creative Change Laboratory

Love you some art? We’re quite partial to it, too – so we’re very happy to share news about a Creative Change Laboratory art workshop, which you’ll be able to join at the Volunteer Tent on the Village Green. Many thanks to the CCLab team for stepping up to contribute the workshop – and for bringing artworks to exhibit on the day!

Chalk Art

All roads might lead to Rome – but all gutters in Obs lead to the Liesbeeck River. So, as a Leave No Trace event at which we do our best to leave the area better than we found it, we’ve very happy that artist Charl-Christo is embarking on an (eco-friendly) art initiative to highlight the issue of keeping our waterways clean & unpolluted. Many thanks to Charl-Christo for this superb art intervention – look out for his chalk art at gutters and drains in our event area!

Ian Mackie – ‘Sea Life Drawings’

We’re happy to announce that Obs local artist Ian Mackie will be exhibiting on the day! Catch his ‘Sea Life Drawing’ show of underwater photos & figure drawings at Framing Place, 46 Lower Main Road, from 10am – 4pm on the day. Thanks, Ian!
