Hawkesbury City Council is sponsoring a new public art project to create temporary chalk artworks in George Street, Windsor from 9am to 3pm this Sunday, 5 May 2019.

I’m delighted that Hawkesbury Community Arts Workshop is coordinating this unique project.

Council’s sponsorship is paying seven local artists an individual artist fee for their artwork, and I’m sure our residents and visitors will all be excited to see all the art being created on the spot in our wonderful heritage town of Windsor.

The artworks will start at the end of Windsor Mall on the corner of George and Fitzgerald Streets and continue along to Hawkesbury Regional Gallery at 300 George Street, Windsor.

I hope that locals and visitors take the time to enjoy the Windsor Mall Sunday Market and then continue along George Street to watch talented Hawkesbury artists at work.

At the Gallery, you will even be able to join in and try your hand at being a chalk artist. There will also be outdoor chalk pavement activities and a chalk wall art activity inside the Gallery. There is also a current exhibition of artworks by local resident Alan Cleary, so that’s worth a visit too!

The Gallery is located at 300 George Street, Windsor. Entry to the Gallery is free. Weekend opening hours: 10am-3pm. For other opening hours and information, visit www.hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au/galleryor call 4560 4441. Connect with the Gallery at www.facebook.com/hawkesburygallery
