Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS - Emily Ace

Hun­dreds stopped to smell the flow­ers at the Bun­bury Re­gional Art Gal­leries, as the Flower De­sign­ers Club of Bun­bury show­cased flo­ral ar­range­ments in the Bloom­ing Art Ex­hi­bi­tion.

Aus­tralind artist Katie Musi­tano was recog­nised for Best Use of Colour in Show

Leschenault artist Lyn Fisher was awarded Best in Show and first prize in the con­tem­po­rary class.

Other ma­jor win­ners in­cluded Bun­bury artist Lyn Har­wood, who was named Most Cre­ative in Show and 20-yearold Jas­min Shaye was named the BRAG De­signer of the Year 2018.

Janet Wells, of Capel, was the Peo­ple’s Choice of the Bloom­ing Artists, for her work in­spired by the paint­ing “Rock Face 2” from the City of Bun­bury Col­lec­tion.

Co­or­di­na­tor Eileen Wenn said the ex­hi­bi­tion had at­tracted more vis­i­tors than any other year.

“We had lots of tourists and peo­ple on their way through Bun­bury from all over Aus­tralia,” she said. “What we were most im­pressed by was see­ing ev­ery­one from tiny tots with their grand­par­ents to teenagers and peo­ple in their 30s, all com­ing to have a look.”

The flow­ers were taken down on Septem­ber 9 and do­nated to churches around Bun­bury.
