Words by Ashleigh Howarth

More than 25 well-known artists and creatives from Mount Glorious and Mount Nebo will have their pieces on display for the public to view and purchase at the upcoming Art with Altitude event next month.

Now in its sixth year, this two-day family-friendly event at the newly rebuilt Mount Glorious Community Hall will feature an art exhibition, art and craft demonstrations, market stalls, live entertainment, raffles, food and more.

Art with Altitude Convenor Rose Cuthbertson is encouraging art lovers and day trippers to make the journey out to the hinterland on the weekend of November 19 and 20, saying there will be something for everyone to enjoy.

“We have a very artistic community here, so there will be some incredible things to see and purchase,” Rose says.

“Everything the artists made for the exhibition will be for sale, so you can stock up on some early Christmas presents.

“Some of the artworks that will be for sale include a variety of oil, watercolour and acrylic paintings, sculptures, ceramics, glasswork, pen-and-ink-drawings, photography, fine furniture and woodwork, as well as fibre art.

“The price guide will be very reasonable, so there will be things for sale from as low as $10 right up to some of the higher price point items.”

In addition to the art exhibition, there will also be art and craft demonstrations, a number of market stalls on the adjoining Village Green, live entertainment, food, coffee and raffles.

There will also be a newly built children’s playground for the kids to enjoy.

“We will be asking people for a gold coin donation, which is not an entry fee, but that will give them a ticket into the raffle to win an artwork done by one of our artists, plus three chances to win a weekend away at Mount Glorious,” Rose explains.

“Mount Glorious is a travel destination as it is surrounded by the rainforest in the D’Aguilar National Park.

“There are lots of beautiful bushwalking tracks, restaurants and cafes to visit.

“If you are planning on coming to the event, make a day trip out of it and take time out to explore the region as well.”
