The streets of Mosman will transform into an art gallery from from 6 - 14 March with the launch of the inaugural Mosman Art Walk.

Over 30 artworks by celebrated Australian artists will be hung in local shop windows before being sold at auction online, including pieces by Ken Done, Katherine Castillo Alferez, Channel Mace, Sophie Cape, Dana Dion and Hadyn Wilson.

The brain child of Mosman High School's Art Committee, 20 per cent of the proceeds from each sale will go to the school's art department and 80 per cent to the artist.

“Our aim was to create an event that would not only support our school, but local businesses and artists, who have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic,” organiser and Mosman local Ann King said.

“We look forward to welcoming people to Mosman where they can explore the local village as they take the art walk and come up close and personal with some magnificent pieces of art." 

“Mosman has a long and rich association with the arts and it’s wonderful to see a program that will not only provide a new and exciting experience for residents but help out sectors of our creative community that have had such a challenging year," added Mosman Council Mayor Carolyn Corrigan.

“I am delighted that Mosman Council can be involved in this innovative Mosman High School  initiative, which will provide further support for our local businesses and our much loved artistic community."

A map of the walk will be available at the Mosman Art Walk website, with guided tours also able to be booked for Monday 8 March or Wednesday 10 March, 6 - 7pm. 

The interactive program will also include a virtual quiz for kids, so the whole family can get involved.
