Acclaimed Sydney artist and Archibald finalist Mia Oatley is exhibiting her new series of landscape paintings entitled ‘Sydney Sparkle Strut’ at Stockland’s Shopping Centre Balgowlah from the 5th - 11th November.
Oatley’s richly worked oil paintings and drawings pay homage to Sydney’s breathtaking coastline, including some of the Northern Beaches’ best loved weekend hangouts including Little Manly, Shelly and Balmoral Beach.
The choice to exhibit in a pop up gallery at the front entrance of busy Stockland’s Shopping Centre, near the artist’s home was very deliberate - “making art accessible has always been a mantra for me,” Oatley says.
“Particularly for people who are interested in owning a quality piece of artwork but find it hard to find the time to visit galleries”.
The artworks will be offered for pre-sale over the next few months on Mia’s instagram page - with some of the larger pieces from the show already snapped up by astute buyers.
According to Stockland’s management Mia’s exhibition will be the first of its kind, with Mia looking forward to surprising and delighting her art audience and shoppers alike.
