Northern Exposure - Photo Essay

Words and Photos by J Forsyth Northcote Visual Arts Festival, Northern Exposure opened Friday night, June 15th to a welcoming, and enthusiastic crowd. High Street, Northcote transforms to become one big art space, with individual traders, galleries and the United Church using their windows and spaces to display visual and performing art. However, for a suburb that has its own tag line "it’s a little bit different" the crowd seemed smaller than I expected and Northcote, seemed to be the same as always. Having said that Northcote clearly has a strong community with a dedicated following, that love art community festivals. Northern Exposure, now in its eighth year is still a talked about event in festival calendar.
