She to Sea Art Show
She to Sea is an all female art exhibition that has run in conjunction with the Noosa Festival of Surfing since 2018. It is a celebration of women coming together to share their love for the ocean, surf, art, photography and surfwear.
Sunshine Coast Artist and surf photographer Tracy Naughton of Let Me Sea had the brainchild for She to Sea a few years back as a way of women supporting each other through their work and passion for the ocean. ‘I am so stoked to be gearing up for our 3rd annual exhibition, it is something that is so important to me and all the girls involved, we have some new comers this year and we can’t wait to share new work.’
Tracy’s idea originally stemmed from a desire to belong to something larger than herself, to build a network for women in the creative surf industry. ‘I have been asked if our exhibition is anti men or if men are even allowed to attend and I was quite shocked at the thought that people thought men were not invited to join in! It was not the point at all, we have so much love and respect for the men of surfing but this is about something which faces women in business and in general life, its not about anti men its about pro women, encouraging each other to be the best we can.
We are beyond excited to welcome Cait Miers to the exhibition this year as one of the leading women’s surf photographers having shot for Roxy, Billabong, the WSL, and many of Australia’s Tourism bodies it is amazing to have her involved!
Along with Cait we welcome originally from Germany Lotta and the Waves and hailing from the UK Hannah Prewitt both who are emerging forces in the surf photography world, other new comers include local artists Anna Wallman and Heidi Obi.
‘Quite often we are our own biggest critics, and to have empowering women around us to share our dreams and creative journeys within the industry is the ultimate confidence boost ‘
‘Everyone is welcome to come and share what we have created. Alongside the art and photography we have small local brands She & the Sea and Dkoko Bikinis who will both have women’s surf wear for sale on the night. Each year we get the most positive feedback from the public, it’s just an all round good vibe.’
Once again the laidback atmosphere of the iconic Halse Lodge will provide the backdrop for the event which will be held on Tuesday 25th of February from 5pm.
