Please prepare your work for us to hang

The ArtSpace experiences moderate to severe winds and while the sea breeze is refreshing to feel it can lift even heavy pieces of art and throw them.  Art is displayed on fencing panels and we've learned that using cable ties to secure it is our safest and most reliable option in the wind.

We will have hooks and cable ties for registered entries but artists must prepare their own work to hang.

Cardboard and paper are impossible to hang and damage is guaranteed.  

All artwork is displayed at the owners risk.

Images of Artworks and Artists may be used in promotional material by Nightcliff Community Bank® Branch


Additional sponsors are still being finalised and there is the opportunity to join us in 2019.  Sponsoring a secondary category in the Jetty ArtSpace will get your business name here, social media mentions, acknowledgement on the day and at the presentations.  Prizes are negotiable and we welcome your enquiry.  

Secondary categories

Categories have been chosen to suit the work being registered.  All artwork is up for the Community Choice prize and will be allocated into a second category.

Recycled - When you recycle something, you process it so it can be used again. Needs to be a very high percentage of reused items except for any glue or paint.

3D -  3D art is perceived to have height, width and depth, and having these three makes it a form; meaning all 3D arts have form. It is not flat like paintings, drawings and photographs.

Collage - Not just magazine pictures on paper in the world of fine art collage is a specific art term, meaning a piece formed primarily by images that are adhered to an item to form a new image. (mosaic included)

Mixed media - Mixed media simply means more than one medium being used in a piece, so it can be painting and magazine images, assembled junk, ink and watercolor, etc etc

Painting - A painting is an image (artwork) created using pigments (color) on a surface (ground) such as paper or canvas. The pigment may be in a wet form, such as paint, or a dry form,

Children & Youth - Kids, munchkins, future leaders, rug rats, kidlets, whippersnappers, youngsters, offspring – you get the idea, all the young humans.

Judges for any second category will be appointed by the organisers and will be independent of the Community Choice awards.

How and when do I get my art to the jetty?

The record number of artwork packed into my car (a sedan) was 96 which is how it's all transported to the Jetty.  Please consider the size of your art and items which are large, heavy or bulky will need the artist to arrange delivery and collection directly to the event.

Nightcliff Community Bank® Branch, 40 Progress Drive Nightcliff 
Open 9.30am - 5pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 12 noon on Saturdays. Please avoid the last 30-60 minutes before closing if possible.
