Gone Fishing Gallery Opening in historic Pasadena-on-Pittwater, at Church Point

Gone Fishing Gallery is being officially opened by celebrated author of ‘Salvation Creek’ and
local Pittwater resident Susan Duncan on Saturday, 4th December 3pm-5pm,
1858 Pittwater Road (old Pasadena-on-Pittwater), Church Point.
Showcasing the work of offshore artists,
Gone Fishing Gallery features paintings, prints, photography, ceramics, sculpture and jewellery.4
“This is an artist run initiative and offshore artists will be exhibiting their work in a fabulous
space overlooking Pittwater,” says coordinator and artist Paul Smith.

Next September, an exclusive exhibition of award winning offshore artists will be held at the Manly
Regional Gallery. This will be a highlight of the Manly Festival.
The Gone Fishing Gallery is situated next to Church Point Ferry Service at 1858, Pittwater Road.

Opening hours are Saturday and Sundays, 10am to 4pm, and Monday to Friday by appointment.
The opening hours account for its quirky name, because if they are not there…
They are just 5 minutes away by boat, (pulling in the fish….)

0404 103 601 or on FACEBOOK webpage:

The studios are attached to a gallery space opening in March of next year.
