ARTALIVE! happens on the Saturday of the Festival weekend
Artists at work around the town add an extra dimension to the many Festival activities and their displays are always very popular with visitors.
ArtAlive! runs at no cost to the artists. Artists creating their paintings and drawings or their craft are all welcome, providing interest and colour, demonstrating their skills and chatting to interested viewers - perhaps making a sale. All participants MUST be actually working at creating their art, and large commercial-style stalls are discouraged. In exchange, the Festival Committee does not charge artists a 'site fee', nor any commission on sales made.
Artists gather will be positioned around the town in small groups, usually in Jackson Park or on the footpath in front of the Beaches Pub. In Jackson Park gazebo-style tents are provided with two trestle tables to accommodate two artists, while some artists prefer to make a display on the open lawn. On the footpath by the pub nothing is provided; artists bring everything they need.
All correspondence is now by email or phone, and positions and full details will be known when the number of participants is known.
Why not be part of ArtAlive! in 2O18?
