New art gallery from local artists
A new art gallery has opened in Umina.
Named The Public, it opened its doors in West St providing an outlet for local artists and making their artwork accessible to all.
Founder Ms Jennifer Jamieson also operates pottery workshop Centred Ceramics.
"I want to make creativity accessible," she said.
"The gallery is going to be predominantly showing local artists.
"I believe that the arts and artists have a really valuable place in culture and community, and I wanted to contribute to a greater appreciation for artists."
She said the gallery would host month-long exhibitions, with a new collection presented on the first Friday of each month.
"I think people in our community would love to have more access to local artists.
"We intend to offer these pieces at a range of price points so that owning art is something that is accessible."
