Arts brewing at Noosaville for surf fest

Event Organiser Owen Cavanagh with Heads of Noosa Owner Craig Masterton

 Heads of Noosa brewery will once again play host to the annual Surf Art Expo as part of the Noosa Festival of Surfing.

For the second year running, the local brewery will be converted into a gallery exhibiting an incredible collection of surf inspired art from over 40 local, interstate and international artists.

Organised by local celebrated surf artist, Owen Cavanagh, the event will run for 9 days from 22 February until 1 March and is packed full of activities for all ages.

Both Saturdays during the event will be market days, with live demonstrations and additional displays.

There will also be a kid’s surf art competition, a Surf Wagon/Kombi charity run and much more to keep visitors entertained.

The Heads of Noosa Taproom will be open for the whole 9 days in line with the expo, serving beer and food.

“We’ve pulled together some extraordinary artisans who work with traditional and fairly unconventional tools and unusual mediums,” Owen said.

“This event is really something special. All these people in the one place celebrating the magic of the ocean through their individual expression, and all taking place in a brewery, what more could you want?”

Raffles, donations and proceeds of the event will be going to the Surfrider Foundation, an organisation that does incredible work protecting the local beaches and oceans.

For the last 2 years, $30,000 worth of art was sold during the event and they are hoping to go one better this time around.

Heads of Noosa owner Craig Masterton is looking forward to hosting the expo again this year.

“Last year was an absolute blast and we’d only just opened, so this year should be even better,” Craig said.

“We love being involved with these kinds of events, bringing talented like-minded people together to celebrate something we all hold dear in this part of the world, especially when we can all share a beer at the end of the day.”
