If you’re an artist looking for a platform to share your work, a community mural project could be perfect for you.
Lake Macquarie-based Primewest Edgeworth is seeking submissions of art to be installed on the wall of the pedestrian ramp in its building.
“[We] are committed to engaging with our customers and the local community,” Administration Manager Heather Sams said.
“We [have] this amazing blank space, and want to invite the community to show their creative ways and have a permanent piece of their art [on display].”
The team has set five themes the artworks should fall into, including historical elements of Lake Macquarie, Sir Tannatt William Edgeworth David, Natural landscape: flora and fauna found in Lake Macquarie, the people in our community, and local sport.
“The creative pieces can include visual art mediums such as painting, drawing, illustrations, graphic design, photography, digital design, collages, and illustrations,” Heather said.
She adds they’ve had a huge amount of interest.
“There has been a phenomenal response of customer feedback about bringing the community in to be involved,” she said.
“We have put the call out to local primary and high schools in the area in the hopes of encouraging local art students to participate.”
The winning artist will be awarded a $5,000 honorarium and have their art installed at the site in August.
Artists from Lake Macquarie, Newcastle and the Hunter are welcome to make a submission.
