Coffee & Community Art Exhibition – Now Showing at the Will & Co HQ Tasting Bar
on Oct 24, 2023
Since day one (a wild 10 years ago), we’ve collaborated with independent Aussie artists to tell the Will & Co story and bring our brand to life. It’s a core part of our DNA – something we pride ourselves on.
Over the years, these legends have become so much more than “partners”, they’ve become mates for life. And as we look to the next decade and beyond, we can’t wait to continue these relationships, build new ones, and keep Aussie art as a pillar of who we are.
To celebrate these artists and the part they’ve played in our journey – both past and future – we’re kicking off our epic 10-year celebrations with an art exhibition at the Will & Co HQ Tasting Bar from now until the end of the year.
Titled Coffee & Community, this exhibition features works by artists from Bondi and beyond, which’ll be auctioned off at the end of the year with all proceeds going to a local charity close to our heart: OneWave.
Check out more about the exhibition, artists and auction below.
About Coffee & Community
The artworks featured in the exhibition celebrate the role coffee plays in fostering connections within a community and inspire viewers to reflect on the special bonds that form when people gather in a shared space over a perfect cuppa. Each artist was free to present this in the medium of their choosing. Expect to see some photography, paintings and everything in between.
Many of the artists participating have been long-time mates of Will & Co. Photographer Kat Parker has captured the brand through her lens since day one and many of her shots showcase the work of designers and sign painters Chris Nixon, Emiel Saada, Steve Smith and Lance Corlett – all who have joined in the exhibition.
We’re also honoured to bring on board some incredibly talented local Sydney artists who are new to the family, including Madison Davies and Easty Beasty. We’re not lying when we say their pieces will blow you away.
Auction to Support Mental Health
Coffee & Community will be showing at our Bondi HQ Tasting Bar through the end of the year, so make sure to swing by and check out the pieces while enjoying a good cuppa.
If you’re interested in making a bid on one of the pieces, have a chat to one of our all-star team members and watch this space – we’ll share more details around the auction later in the year.
All proceeds from the auction will go towards our good mates at OneWave Learn more about them below.
OneWave is a non-profit surf community dedicated to raising awareness of mental health through a simple recipe – saltwater therapy, surfing and fluro. Every year, they provide school programs across Australia and New Zealand, sharing tips and tools kids can use throughout their lives to help keep their heads – and their mate’s heads – in tip top shape. They also put on Fluro Fridays across the globe, which are an opportunity for the community to come together to surf and share stories about mental health in a safe, non-judgemental space.
