Local artist Brydie Piaf is showcasing her exhibit 'The Sunrise Swimmers' at Newcastle Region Library and will be there on 9th March 11am - 12pm for you to meet her. The ocean loving community of Newcastle will appreciate the collection and understand the connection shown between people and the sea.

The exhibition features a collection of portraits, seascapes and stories from the early morning swimmers at Newcastle’s iconic Merewether Ocean Baths. These photographs are also available in a book Piaf has published.

The Sunrise Swimmers exhibition will be on display in the Local History Lounge until Tuesday 17 April. Newcastle Region Library is located at 15 Laman Street, Newcastle.

As part of Brydie Piaf’s The Sunrise Swimmers of Merewether Ocean Baths exhibition, a free community swim is being held this month. No bookings necessary, just turn up and celebrate the morning with a dip, surrounded by ocean loving members of the community.
