About the event

Save Wallum, in collaboration with Gallery Cosmosis Byron Bay, announces an upcoming art exhibition and auction dedicated to raising funds for the preservation of the last 1% of wallum heath in Byron Shire.

The exhibition will commence with an opening event on Friday, July 12th, starting at 5:30 PM at Gallery Cosmosis, located at 22 Brigantine St, Byron Bay. The evening promises live music, local brews, and delectable finger foods, providing a vibrant backdrop to the diverse showcase of artworks and the ensuing art auction.

Over 50 local artists, including Space Cowboy, Daniel Hend, Jay Manby, Sharon Shostak, Howie Cooke, Naomi Gittoes,  Yao Mikami, Mark Cora and many more, have generously contributed to the exhibition. Their artworks span a range of mediums from captivating watercolors to intricate sculptures.

Patti Jacobs, owner of Gallery Cosmosis and curator of the exhibition, has been a dedicated supporter of the Save Wallum cause since late 2023. "The Save Wallum movement resonates deeply with everyone who experiences the natural beauty of this region," Jacobs shared. "The ancient trees, banksias, and diverse birdlife inspire us all to take action."

The exhibition will be open to the public from July 12th to July 22nd 2024, offering an extended opportunity for art enthusiasts and environmental advocates to view and bid on exceptional artworks that support a critical environmental cause.

Local artists interested in contributing to this initiative are encouraged to contact Patti via email at gallerycosmosis@gmail.com.
