Artists & Craftsmen of Pittwater

Who we are
ACOP is a group of painters and crafters from the Pittwater area, on Sydney's northern beaches. We hold exhibitions three or four times a year, in either Mona Vale Memorial Hall or Narrabeen Tramshed Arts & Community Centre. The Mona Vale hall is located at Mona Vale shops, in the park where Pittwater Road and Barrenjoey Road meet.  Tramshed is located on Pittwater Road near the original restored Narrabeen tram shed; we use the halls in the building closest to Narrabeen Lake.

At our exhibitions, entry is free, you are welcome to look, and you are welcome to buy - it's entirely up to you.

Our exhibitions in 2024
In 2024, we will have two exhibitions at Mona Vale Memorial Hall (which we've been using since we started in 1967) and two at Narrabeen Tramshed.  The dates are:

Autumn:   Friday 19 to Sunday 21 April at Mona Vale Memorial Hall
Winter:   Friday 19 to Sunday 21 July at Narrabeen Tramshed
Spring:  Friday 4 to Sunday 6 October at Mona Vale Memorial Hall
Christmas:   Friday 13 to Sunday 15 December at Narrabeen Tramshed

Getting to our Exhibitions
Mona Vale has car parking throughout the shops, and is easy to reach by bus - our main bus routes are the route B1 yellow double decker express bus from the city (Wynyard) to Mona Vale, the 199 from Manly Wharf to Palm Beach, and the 196 or 197 from Gordon Station to Mona Vale.

Narrabeen has a car park alongside Tramshed, and there is plenty of car parking on the other side of Pittwater Road.  It is also easy to reach by bus, with a B1 stop at the adjacent restored tram shed, where the 199 from Manly also stops.  Although there is no direct bus from the North Shore, Tramshed is only 3 stops on the B1 from the Dee Why terminus of the 160X express from Chatswood.
