A WORD from Leeton Shire Council’s marketing and cultural service co-ordinator Suesann Vos.
Our Lyrics, Landscapes and Lintels public art installation will be completed by the end of July, funded by the NSW government. Keep your eyes peeled on Chelmsford Place for an artwork officially named “Amorphic Resonance” and nicknamed “Walter” by artists Greg Pritchard and Dave Jones on July 23.
This work celebrates the vision and work of designer Walter Burley Griffin through art deco ornaments, cornices and geometric patterns. These celebrate his iconic design style, which will also includes the projection of a night time image of his portrait on the water tower.
Also happening on July 23 is the Whitton installation of a fabulous piece “Charred Memories” by artist Carla Gottgens, and on July 25, “wind messenger” will be installed at Rotary Park.
The 2019 Art Deco Festival dates have been announced, keep July 12 to 14 free in your calendar and start telling your telling your friends who live interstate. We want to hear from interested people who would like to join our volunteer coordinating committee please call me on 6953 0922 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
