Is your town on the gallery map?

Shepparton News - Country News - - FRONT PAGE -

Across the flat and sprawl­ing land­scape of the Goul­burn Val­ley and South­ern Rive­rina, among stretches of high­way and tow­er­ing trees, there are few things as con­stant as grain si­los. As Wim­mera Mallee com­mu­ni­ties con­tinue to com­plete their Silo Art Trail, which will fea­ture six si­los across the re­gion trans­formed into works of art, it has be­come a source of in­spi­ra­tion for many, with each silo seen as a po­ten­tial can­vas. Th­ese in­tri­cate art­works echo the stun­ning land­scapes that sur­round them, with the mono­lithic struc­tures stand­ing out against the evening sky.This unique out­door gallery has cap­tured imag­i­na­tions and prompted many com­mu­ni­ties across the re­gion to look at their own struc­tures through fresh eyes.

Do you have a silo in your town you’d like to see trans­formed? If you have any ideas, or sim­ply want more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Alana Chris­tensen on 5820 3237 or email: alana.chris­tensen@shep­p­news. com.au
