Shellharbour City Council is pleased to announce the artists who will be part of Council’s ‘Art in Unexpected Places’ curatorial project. Hannah Jensen, Leaf Klevjar and Rachael Young will be showcasing their artworks within four bus stations around the city.

This project is an exciting opportunity to enliven a space with the work of local artists and celebrates art in the most unexpected of places. The outdoor exhibition will run from December to June next year.

Furthermore, artist Richard Campbell has commenced painting an artwork series on nine electrical boxes on George Street, Warilla, as part of the Town Centre upgrade. Integrated into Richard’s design will be a narrative and storytelling element, as well as local nature and wildlife.

Shellharbour City Council CEO, Carey McIntyre said the concept of ‘Art in Unexpected Places’ is great for showcasing the creativity and talent of local artists in our community.

“It is a wonderful opportunity to feature a range of different parts of our city,” Mr McIntyre said.
