The Tree Street Art Safari will again weave its way through the streets of Bunbury with exhibitors now being called on to enter the 2020 event.

The popular safari showcases Bunbury Geographe artists in yards, studios and homes within Bunbury’s tree street area.

Exhibitions include all art mediums such as jewellery, painting, sculpture, wood works, ceramics and pottery.

Safari organiser Jo O’Dea said the event had a great community feel and provided the ideal opportunity for artistic development.

Both hosts and artists are now encouraged to submit an application by November 30.

Once applications are closed the venues and artists will be matched for the unique and exciting self-guided walking exhibition.

Three lucky artists will also have the opportunity to win $1000 to create an interactive installation in the front yard or verge of a home.

“This initiative is a fabulous way the art safari contributes to the development of regional artists, while also enhancing this beautiful event through community interaction and engagement,” Ms O’Dea said.

Interested artists are invited to submit a proposal to create and install their own work.

The event will be held on March 21.

Applications to join the safari can be made on the Stirling Street Arts Centre website, while inquiries and submissions for the interactive installation can be emailed to events@joodea.com.au.
