Cooran’s Art extravaganza


Cooran’s annual Art extravaganza – the Tall Trees Art Exhibition is on again this weekend from 5-7 July showcasing the diverse talents of Cooran and surrounding hinterland artists.

Now in its tenth year the Tall Trees Art Exhibition continues to bring new interest to the exhibition due to generous donations and a talented team of curators and art connoisseurs and a backdrop of quirky and interesting buildings which add flavour to act as a backdrop to the art works.

The exhibition will take place at 19 venues in King Street, Cooran and be a real collaboration between local businesses, artists and the community.

Visitors can take their time meandering along the street to discover art works down alleyways, hung against colourful walls and in gardens, shops, houses and community spaces and stop off to enjoy the good food and local fare.

Organiser Mia Hacker said the exhibition was all about local businesses supporting artists and artists supporting local business.

Artists involved this year include Jim Martin, Jandamarra Cadd, Lew Brennan and Michelle Kurth.

The event will this year kick off with the Bendigo Bank Meet the Artists Opening Night being held at 6pm at Hinterland Restaurant and the Cooran Hall providing an opportunity to ‘meet and greet’ with artists before the weekend long exhibition which concludes on 5pm on Sunday 7 July.
