On Thursday 8th June this project finally came to fruition with the unveiling of THE GOGGLES at the shore-end of the Port Noarlunga Jetty. The project began in 2014, initially intended for the Glenelg Jetty, and was then picked up by the Port Noarlunga community. South coast locals Anna Small and Warren Pickering were the artists whose concept design was selected for this fabulous location.
The resulting piece is a wonderful addition to the Port Noarlunga foreshore – and hopefully the start of more collaborations between the local Business and Tourism Association, local artists, Onkaparinga Council, reef champions and residents. The Friends of Gulf St
Vincent are delighted with the outcome of the project and proud to have played a part in bringing it to life!
Friends of Gulf St Vincent would like to thank everyone who attended our 2016 AGM – Thursday Nov 24.
Guest speaker was Dr Tullio Rossi, as a science communicator with a passion for the ocean, he is helping scientists and institutions communicate complex ideas in a simple and effective way. Tullio’s talk was based on his 3-time award-winning animation video Lost at Sea. www.tulliorossi.com
At the AGM the role of Secretary was handed over from Pam Wales to Steve Papp, Tania Cann stepped down from the Committee and Laurel Walker was elected to the Committee. Other office bearers and committee members remained the same.
President – Angela Gackle
Treasurer – Val Wales
Secretary – Steve Papp
Members – Rob Bosley, Mike Bossley, Janine Baker, Peter Shaughnessy, Laurel Walker
The Friends of Gulf St Vincent Inc. are seeking to commission an artist(s) to create an interactive, permanent, iconic public art work, which will:
– complement the location and feel of Port Noarlunga Beach
– engage and educate the public regarding the reef’s health and future opportunities if it is well cared for.
The artist(s) are encouraged to exercise artistic expression and freedom on this project, however the work will need to explore and refer to the themes outlined in the Port Noarlunga Reef Artist Brief. At this stage, we have obtained funds to pay shortlisted artists a concept fee of $1000. The piece(s) will be installed in the entranceway to Port Noarlunga Jetty at the Witton Centre, Port Noarlunga (see image) and will complement the recent development of the Witton Centre upgrade.
