Gal­leries set to come alive

South Western Times - - News -

NATURE’S beauty will be on full dis­play when the Flower De­sign­ers Club of Bun­bury opens its an­nual Bloom­ing Art Ex­hi­bi­tion to­day.

The ex­hi­bi­tion, to be hosted at the Bun­bury Re­gional Art Gal­leries, is an­tic­i­pated to at­tract more than 1000 peo­ple over four days.

Ex­hi­bi­tion co­or­di­na­tor Eileen Wenn said this year’s liv­ing art pieces cen­tred around a “bed­time” theme.

“The cen­tre­piece is done by club mem­bers and it’s a bed­time theme this year, so ob­vi­ously we are hav­ing a flo­ral bed with ev­ery­thing in flow­ers,” she said.

“It at­tracts peo­ple of all ages, from young fam­i­lies with chil­dren to teenagers, mid­dle-aged peo­ple and the oldies – they all come and love it.”

Nine “bloom­ing artists” have been in­vited as spe­cial guests this year, who will con­duct in­ter­pre­ta­tions of nine paint­ings from the City Col­lec­tion.

There will also be a de­signer of the year com­pe­ti­tion which Ms Wenn said would fill the gallery with en­tries.
