For the third year, Inner West Council offered artists interested in Environmental Art a chance to win funds to create a temporary artwork for installation on the GreenWay, Cooks River to Iron Cove green corridor. Eight artists have been commissioned to install artworks for exhibition over for ten days as featured event of the Inner West Open Studio Trail period in May 2017. Their works will be on exhibition between Wednesday 10 - Tuesday 23 May, 2017.

Please join us to Officially open Art on The GreenWay and the Inner West Open Studio Trail on Saturday 13 May, 5.30-8.30pm.

Art on the GreenWay Site
The site for the Art on the GreenWay environmental art installations is the section of the Canal Road Hub in Lilyfield as indicated by the  below map  and visible as the “7” shape. The site encompasses the area near to Blackmore Oval, and runs under the City West Link, and onto the Lilyfield Road Bridge (Lilyfield Road - this site is available to Waste to Art Commission applicants only.)

Art on the GreenWay 2015

Visit Studio No 26 on the LOST Map to see how local artists have responded to the site at the Canal Road Hub on the Greenway, just under the City West Link and near to Blackmore Oval. The artists have been invited to create works that are temporary, environmental, and that respond to the site in which they will be exhibited - which is our beloved GreenWay, a 5km green corridor which runs from the Cooks River to Iron Cove.

Participating artists include Sally Kidall, Bernadette Smith, Dr Mark Elliot-Ranken, Janny Grant, and artist team Selina Springett and Alessandro Berini.

These six artists have been working on the designs that they submitted for inclusion in Art on The GreenWay, over the relatively short timeframe of six weeks. Their installations use a variety of natural and man-made materials, sound and solar equipment, photography, bamboo, grass, and more.
