The Gathering Place

Novotel Sydney on Darling Harbour is currently displaying an original artwork by a talented indigenous artist, Jacob Toomey called 'The Gathering Place'

The piece was commissioned by the Hotel in acknowledgement of our local Gadigal community as the original custodians of the land upon which the Hotel sits. We thank Jacob for sharing his talent and welcome all to come view the piece in the Hotel.

“The Gathering Place” aims to capture the journey taken by many across the numerous oceans and seas of the world. A journey which leads them to this land, traditional Gadigal land of Sydney where the hotel sits.

The centre piece portrays the area of the Novotel and Sydney Harbour, and the places of origin spread across the canvas symbolised through the traditional circular symbols. Ultimately The Gathering Place has the goal of detailing the significance of travel and the beautiful land in which the Novotel thrives amongst.
