PopUp Gallery – pops up and out!
Last week saw the official Opening of the PopUp Gallery space at the Westfield Shopping Centre, Tuggerah. There was a great turnout, including local councillors, the Wyong Mayor and management representation from the Westfield Shopping centre and many of the artists being represented.
Wyong Shire Mayor – Doug Eaton gave a speech about the council’s new approach to arts in the Wyong Shire. He sees a new initiative which will help grow local businesses and support the artists and artisans of the area.
The manager of Westfield shopping Centre also spoke about the centre’s commitment to helping local people and giving back to the community, through providing the space free of charge to various groups over the next 5 months or so.
By now sadly, it is all over for the first group, The Central Coast Collective, however they did well in sales and are looking forward to their next project.
