Art blooms as de­sign­ers show tal­ent

South Western Times - - News -

AL­MOST 1000 peo­ple came to en­joy the Bun­bury Flower De­sign­ers four-day Bloom­ing Art Ex­hi­bi­tion last week which was cen­tred around a “bed­time” theme.

The ex­hi­bi­tion at the Bun­bury Re­gional Art Gallery show­cased liv­ing flo­ral art in a va­ri­ety of classes, as well as nine paint­ings from the City of Bun­bury col­lec­tion which were in­ter­preted by the nine “Bloom­ing Artists”.

Bus­sel­ton artist Tina Dagostino was pre­sented with the view­ers’ choice award in the Flo­ral Art sec­tion, while Col­lie artist Sue Pi­lati re­ceived the view­ers’ choice in the BRAG De­signer of the Year class.

Lyn Fisher took home three awards for her work in the Con­tem­po­rary sec­tion in­clud­ing first place in her class as well as Best in Show and the Best Use of Colour in Show. Other first prize win­ners in their classes were Jas­min Shaye, Julie Bolton, Katie Musi­tano, Penny Brun­ning and Deb­bie Payne.

Or­gan­iser Eileen Wenn said prepa­ra­tions for next year would soon be un­der way.

Mrs Wenn said the flo­ral bed cen­tre­piece was “sliced up like a wed­ing cake” and dis­trib­uted.

“Peo­ple got to take a bit home or grow some or re-pur­pose the flow­ers – it was shared all over the place,” she said.
