Art high­lights na­ture of Pre­ston River Val­ley

South Western Times - - News -

A new art event named Art . . . Nat­u­rally is be­ing launched on Novem­ber 3 and 4 along the Pre­ston River Val­ley to pro­mote the re­gion.

Pro­mote Pre­ston spokes­woman and event or­gan­iser Fi Richard­son said 22 tex­tile artists from the broader Bun­bury Geographe re­gion had en­tered pieces into the For the Love of Na­ture tex­tile fine art com­pe­ti­tion as part of the event.

“The Pre­ston River Val­ley is a beau­ti­ful part of the South West, with forests of jar­rah and marri right on our doorstep,” she said.

“This made it easy to choose ‘for the love of na­ture’ as our theme.

“This ex­hi­bi­tion will be judged by highly re­garded Noon­gar artist San­dra Hill and renowned Ferguson Val­ley artist Jan Hart.”

Ms Richard­son said the Pre­ston River Val­ley com­mu­nity is a cre­ative and sup­port­ive one.

“We are ex­cited to pro­mote our val­ley and show­case tex­tile fine art which his­tor­i­cally has had lit­tle ex­po­sure,” she said.

“We are for­tu­nate to have a col­lec­tion of tal­ented artists work­ing in dif­fer­ent me­dia who are open­ing their stu­dios, some for the first time, for the art trail which trav­els along the Don­ny­brook-Boyup Brook Road.”
