featuring the work of Michael Bryant and Tracy Jay
The Hungry Ocean has been showing for the last two weeks. There have been many visitors to the Gallery who don’t live in the immediate area and are amazed at the extent of the erosion Kingscliff has suffered since 2009. The extensive body of photographic work chronicles the massive coastal erosion events affecting the tourist town of Kingscliff Beach from 2009-2011.
An entire foreshore has effectively been reclaimed by the ocean. Hundreds of trees and sea grass that grew upon the dunes and walk tracks to the beach are either buried under the sand or have been renoved by Tweed Shire Council.
A service road to the car park at the southern end of the beach literally fell into the ocean during 2009/2010. There is a a wilderness of sand now extending from the northern wall to just south of the Surf Club. Major works are still been undertaken from the Club House to the Bowling Club. The jury is still out on the future of this local foreshore…
The exhibition aims to promote awareness of the local issue as a microcosm of global events.
