Manly Arts Festival 2013 call for artists and performers of every type to take part in 2013 Manly Arts Festival

  • The deadline for applications by participating artists is Friday 31 May 2013

Artists of every kind, including painters and sculptors, musicians and singers, performance and multi-media artists, arts organisations – and indeed all those who love the arts – are being called to join in the 2013 Manly Arts Festival (running from 19 – 29 September), including the Manly Artist Market and an Open Studios Weekend.

Venues including galleries, cafes, restaurants and other spaces are also invited to host and/or organise arts-related events during the Festival. 

Manly Art Gallery & Museum will once again host the very colourful Manly Artist Market along West Esplanade between Manly Wharf and the Gallery.”

Artists from all over the peninsula are invited create works outdoors, then display and sell their work market-style, on the lawn in front of the Gallery and between the trees on West Esplanade.

Artists from the Manly and Northern Beaches region are also being invited to be part of an Open Studios Weekend as part of the 2013 Manly Arts Festival.

On Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 September from 10am – 4pm, local artists are invited to open their private studios, art spaces or galleries to the public on this special weekend to give visitors the opportunity to see ‘behind the scenes’ and learn more about the creative process. It also gives artists an additional opportunity to sell their work.

The Manly Arts Festival is managed by members of Manly’s creative community represented on the Manly Arts Festival Committee, which is convened by Manly Council.
