ArtWalk 2019

Artwalk Logo

ArtWalk is an edgy, intense and surprising night of discovery. Last year’s event attracted around 11,000 people, illuminating secret, unassuming and unexpected spaces with free pop up performances, artistic interventions and creative installations.

The Port Macquarie CBD, its streets, intersections, cafes and cultural facilities will become the stage for contemporary works as artists push the boundaries of their practice. Experience the ArtWalk night and participate in other creative activities throughout the weekend.

The theme for 2019 was reflection on “Elements”: exploring the concept of elements across lands looking to earth, wind, water and fire. ArtWalk encourages the community to come together in a series of engaging arts activities, creating opportunities for people to meet, exchange ideas and foster community spirit.

A great line up of satellite events complements the ArtWalk evening; with highlights including the Graffiti Sound Lounge at Dark Alley Collectables, featuring live artist demonstrations and music on the Saturday evening. If you want to get your hands dirty, why not book into one of the creative workshops on offer hosted by Sunset Gallery, Arthouse Industries and Clay Koala. Or if it is just the appreciation of arts you’re in to, then head on out and see Lighthouse Gallery, featuring Nicola Macleay’s work, the new Ken Strong Gallery or see local artist Wendy Stokes work at the Glasshouse Regional Gallery.
