Flotsam & Jetsam by Latitude Jewellers Art Exhibition
A truly supported community art exhibition which starts with cleaning up debris at the Abrolhos Islands to selling that ‘debris’ at a prestigious annual art event.
Launching on Clean Up Australia Day, the first Sunday in March each year, a team of Latitude Jewellers volunteers travel to the Abrolhos Islands, home to Latitude Jewellers pearl farm, to spend their weekend ‘cleaning up’ the environment. Latitude Jewellers recognises that the utmost of care and responsibility comes with their pearl farm. Following the Clean Up, people come from near and far to select items that inspire them. Artists have a few weeks to create their masterpiece, and the category winners will be announced at the exhibition opening night on Saturday 30th April 2022.
The exhibition is at Latitude Jeweller’s and will be open to the general public from 1st May until the 28th May 2022.
There is an opportunity for the community to vote for their favourite piece of art and the People’s Choice Award will be announced on the 27th May 2022.
With over 100 entries this is a truly unique exhibition that has a strong sustainability message and aims to drive awareness of our environmental responsibility to protect and preserve not only the Abrolhos Islands but our beautiful planet.
If you’re an art lover, don’t miss the opportunity to view the incredible pieces created and proudly displayed at Latitude Jewellers, 169 Marine Terrace, Geraldton.
