The virtual River of Art is getting even bigger and better. With the original program cancelled because of the COVID restrictions, this year’s virtual festival launched last Friday is taking on a whole new life.
The latest addition to the virtual Festival is the fabulous Sunset Sessions by Sam Martin featuring musicians and performers who would not have been here in the Eurobodalla for the festival but thanks to our virtual format, they’re here for us. Find them here: https://www.riverofart.com.au/sunset-sessions-with-sams-caravan/
And the River of Art is looking for more musicians to join its virtual festival. Musicians are invited to register with us so that we can launch them online via our Arts Directory. Provide their contact details and images or a short video in concert for us to launch via our website www.riverofartinc.com.au
It’s a simple online process to fill out an Arts Directory form on our website, and we do the rest.
For everyone else, you can explore Eurobodalla’s vibrant arts community online from the comfort of your laptop/smart phone/tablet and wherever you are, as you sail down our virtual River of Art. The jewel of the 2021 Virtual River of Art is the Virtual Gallery which you can view on our website. You are in the driving seat and can view the images as though they are hanging on the walls of a real gallery. Alternatively, you can flick through images of an exhibition on our website.
Exhibitions now online are from the following arts groups and many of the works can be purchased directly from the participating artists – no commissions, just you supporting the arts directly! Or you might like to contact a musician and book a gig post-COVID.
- Art Unlimited by Roundsquared
- Eurobodalla Photographic Club
- South Coast Pastel Society
- Comrades in Art (CIA) – ‘Holiday’
- FRAMED – School life interrupted
- Creative Arts Batemans Bay (CABBI)
- That’s Where You Will Find Me (Indi Carmichael)
- MACS Art Exhibition
You can also see a fabulous new video taster of the murals River of Art has created around the Eurobodalla. Click here www.riverofart.com.au/revive/ for a virtual tour of those mural sites and when you can, go and check them out, maps and details are also on our website. Watch this space as their will be more REVIVE murals coming to a wall near you in the new year. There is so much great talent in our region. Dip your toe in the waters of the Eurobodalla and taste what the arts has to offer.
The River of Art wants to thank Sam Martin, SEArts and Create NSW for providing the additional funding to allow us to support the shift to digital. Thanks also to Destination NSW and Eurobodalla Shire Council for their ongoing support of our festival in these difficult times.
