Jess Bracey Art

Leichhardt Bowling Club

foyer feature

Proud to be apart of this local business who support other local businesses!

The lovely David Smedley, who sits on the board of the Leichhardt Bowling club, commissioned this bad boy to hang in the lobby of the club to celebrate their 100th birthday!

Featured in the foyer of this wonderful establishment that is the Leichhardt ‘bowlo’ sits this A1 (594 x 841 mm) illustration of the entire grounds.

I had so much fun sketching it and even more fun hanging it.

I feel as though you can really get a sense of the place when staring and the various details capturing all 4 quadrants, especially the art within the art in the bottom right corner – Mural by artist Marcela Ordonez.

You will also find some local Lilyfield and Leichhardt home sketches scattered around the bowlo walls.

There will be a colouring competition for the kids to enjoy soon designed by Jess Bracey Art, so get the family on down to the bowlo and see what you can spot!

q&a with Baz the bowlo manager

Our business and a lot of our décor is quite traditional which reflects our operations and heritage, however, with changing demographics and clientele we wanted to showcase our venue in a new light.
Excellent! Great communication, quick turnaround and guidance with framing and hanging – Jess is a consummate professional who is passionate about her work.
The contrast of the simplicity of the drawing playing with the complexity of the detail of the drawing makes for a wonderful piece of art that pops off the wall that brings a smile both at a glance and at a stare. Jess has captured our venue in a light we’ve never seen before and we and our customers, both the young and old, love it.
