During the Summer of 2021 we collaborated with two exceptionally talented and accomplished local artists, Jane Mason and Ester Tongs, who produced stunning wall art that enhances our town centre, and attracts a lot of attention to boot! Huge thanks to Jane and Ester for their very generous contributions to improving Browns Bay’s townscape.
Jane Mason created ‘See Good In All Things‘ at Browns Bay Fisheries, 94 Clyde Road, which is the northern gateway to Browns Bay. The ocean theme, shapes, layering and vibrant colours catch the eye and receive many comments from passers by. Jane hopes that her work will encourage people to post on Instagram and caption their images with words of kindness. She innately believes that human beings are good, and her masterpiece is to inspire us to see the good in all things. We are enormously proud to say that this amazing piece of art has its home in Browns Bay.
Ester Tong’s creation ‘Adventure Awaits’ epitomises what Browns Bay is about. The idea for the mural was drawn from her love of this area – sea and adventure. The huge anchor points towards the beach and signifies our beautiful Bays, a area in which to thrive and be happy to return to. The other end of the anchor’s rope, some 40 metres away at the other end of the wall, has broken signifying adventure, and going with the tide.
We are grateful to the local suppliers who make this project achievable. Thanks to Mitre 10 Browns Bay for generously donating paint; Northbridge Signs for the fabulous promotional signage; and Pages Design & Print for their graphic expertise and assistance with rolling out the murals.
But we are not finished…. There are more mural projects in the making in Browns Bay this Summer 2021 so watch this space for developments. This is an ongoing project, and we’re happy to hear from you.
