Art a ma­jor fea­ture

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Easter Festival -

Yar­ri­ambi­ack’s Silo Art Trail again looms as one of the most pro­found at­trac­tions in War­rackn­abeal’s Yfest cel­e­bra­tions.

Many vis­i­tors to War­rackn­abeal who have per­ma­nently pen­cilled in the four-day Yfest on their events cal­en­dar now travel the si­los route as part of their ex­pe­ri­ence.

Si­los at Patchewol­lock, Las­celles, Rose­bery, Brim, Sheep Hills and Ru­pa­nyup fea­ture land­scape-scale im­ages from a va­ri­ety of artists and have cap­tured the at­ten­tion of the world­wide arts com­mu­nity.

Yfest has long had a rep­u­ta­tion for pro­mot­ing fine and per­form­ing arts, from its art show at Yar­ri­ambi­ack Shire Coun­cil of­fices to buskers.

Busk­ing plays a prom­i­nent part in the long week­end of events, with an in­vi­ta­tion for per­form­ers to set up in the heart of War­rackn­abeal shop­ping cen­tre in Scott Street from 9am on Satur­day.

Buskers are free to pick their own spot to per­form and play away to their heart’s con­tent.

Be­tween 12.30pm and 6pm, also on Satur­day, street per­form­ers will gather in War­rackn­abeal’s Lions Park in an ef­fort to win more than $2000 in prize­money at a busk­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

The per­son with the over­all win­ning act will pocket $1000.

The cre­ative tal­ents of peo­ple across the shire will also be on dis­play in an Easter Satur­day street pa­rade.

The pa­rade, fea­tur­ing ev­ery­thing from nov­elty floats and peo­ple in cos­tumes, to a va­ri­ety of ve­hi­cles, will start at 11am and be led by a town crier.

War­rackn­abeal Aero Club will add an ex­tra dy­namic to the event with a fly-over.

The art show, fea­tur­ing work by Ali­son Parkin­son and Peter Cougle, will be open through­out Yfest.

The ex­hi­bi­tion also fea­tures art­work by mem­bers of Yar­ri­ambi­ack Youth Group.

Art show times: Friday, artist talk, 5.30pm to 7pm; Satur­day, noon to 5pm; Sun­day, 11am to 5pm; Mon­day, 11am to 3.30pm.
