The Noosa Festival of Surfing will host all-female surf art exhibition She To Sea at Halse Lodge on Tuesday 5 March, showcasing local, national and international surf art throughout the week.

One of two festivals that will run this month as part of the festival, After a resoundingly successful event in 2018, She to Sea will return to one of Noosa’s favourite venues, Halse Lodge, also offering live music, bar and the Lodge’s menu of food. There will be fine art, photography, locally-designed swimwear and textiles on display, featuring works by Let Me Sea, Fenna de King, Marnie Morat, Beck Payne, Amanda Davidson and many more talented women artists.

Celebrated surf artist Owen Cavanagh will be curating a week-long exhibition of surf art and workshops at the newly-opened Heads of Noosa Brewery, with artists from around the world presenting their works, many of which will also be for sale. Artists will also be offering the public the chance to try their hand at their own surf art, and to witness the creative process of such skills as sculpture and pyrography.

The Noosa Festival of Surfing has always been about more than simply riding waves, encompassing a myriad of events including sand sculpture workshops, surf workshops, live music, films, and more. Inviting local Noosa businesses and individuals to be a part of the 28th annual event, the Noosa Festival team has created a vibrant, diverse schedule of events for all ages to enjoy from dawn to well beyond dusk.
