Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - SEA TO SCARP -

As many would know, quil­ters and nee­dle artists share a pas­sion for col­lect­ing fab­rics and fi­bres. The chal­lenge then is to tap into the wealth of ideas wait­ing for a cre­ative hand! The Wa­roona Vis­i­tor Cen­tre last hosted a patch­work quilt­ing, fi­bre and tex­tile ex­hi­bi­tion in its gallery in 2014 and it was a great suc­cess. Now in 2018 that suc­cess is set to be em­u­lated and it is hoped that this ex­cit­ing event for our town will pro­vide in­spi­ra­tion and en­thu­si­asm not only to other tal­ented ar­ti­sans but also to those set­ting out on their cre­ative jour­ney. A Hang­ing on the High­way was of­fi­cially opened by Shire Pres­i­dent Mike Walm­s­ley and guests in­cluded MLA for Mur­ray-Wellington, Robyn Clarke, Shire CEO Ian Cur­ley and Coun­cil­lor John Sa­le­rian, lo­cal cre­atives and com­mu­nity mem­bers, vol­un­teers and sup­port­ers. Lo­cal artist Jan Burne at­tended the open­ing and when asked her thoughts on the ex­hi­bi­tion said “It’s ab­so­lutely beau­ti­ful! A fan­tas­tic ex­hi­bi­tion and an amaz­ing dis­play of lo­cal tal­ent. The hours of pa­tient work that has gone into each and ev­ery art­work is mind bog­gling - all the artists should be heartily con­grat­u­lated on their as­ton­ish­ing work. “The trans­for­ma­tion of the Vis­i­tor Cen­tre is just bril­liant and I en­cour­age ev­ery­body to head down and be thor­oughly im­pressed away by what they see. Con­grat­u­la­tions also, as al­ways, to the hard work­ing vol­un­teers and sup­port­ers for the work put into lov­ingly dis­play­ing each piece.” A Hang­ing on the High­way will open 9:30am to 3:30pm daily through­out Oc­to­ber.
