There may be no new road as yet, but they say when people are isolated their creativity comes to the fore. Mercury Bay is certainly a great example of this, with the unpredictable weather and road closures, our community has shown incredible fortitude and uniquely Coromandel creative work is apparent. The 2024 Art Escape is planning some exciting community art events, including a plan to extend our annual artists-in-residence at Hot Waves Café. Please follow us on Social Media to keep track of news regarding Art Escape’s community events.
