Peter started putting up old work in the tunnel underneath our local railway station a few months ago. Each drawing is labelled with the subject and webpage along with a little note saying “TAKE ME HOME” and they disappear really quickly.
Remember this for next year: Art Drop Day 1st Tuesday in September.
We’re brainstorming how this idea could help find homes for the many portraits waiting in Peter’s studio.
The general idea is to join a world wide treasure hunt for random artwork. Each artist leaves work in a public place and posts to social media using the hashtag #artdropday. They can be as clear or cryptic as they want. Anyone can browse posts with this tag and look out for any drops in their area.
The exhibition runs from 11th August to 25th October.
The Grandview Hotel is prominent on the Great Western Highway on the south side, just east of the main shopping area. It is an easy walk from the train station.
Wentworth Falls is famous for its spectacular waterfalls on the south side. Locals might prefer the manmade lake on the north side – made to provide water for steam engines when the rail line came through last century. The lake has two playgrounds and new footpaths and covered bbq area.
