Preparation and Display of Work

The ArtSpace location is exposed and open to moderate to severe winds. Paper or thin cardboard are easily damaged and not suitable. Work is displayed on wire fencing (see pictures). Experience has told us that using cable ties to secure artwork is our safest option in the wind. We will have hooks and ties for all work but work not ready on these to hang will be excluded.

It is preferable that the artist submits their work ready to hang.

ArtSpace location 

2018 ArtSpace will be at its original location at the Nightcliff Jetty.

In 2016 Nightcliff Community Enterprises introduced an incentive for schools to assist in purchasing materials to create art work.

All eligible registrations received before March 30th will be given $150. This has been extended to Friday April 20th  because of the disruption caused by cyclone Marcus.
