Great Excitement!

Great excitement in the camp
We have won a Highly Commended in the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Art Prize for 2010!

Heather myself and Georgina get together once a month and share our Textile Art ideas and knowledge. We had been having fun 'rust dyeing fabric' then over dyeing to get the colours. 
Using some of this fabric we decided to do a combined art work piece based on the theme of earth, water and vegetation in the Goldfields.

The Result

Heather's - Earth (Salt lakes on her way to work each day)
Annie's - Water (required for life here in the Goldfields)
Georgina's - Timber (Based on the timber required for the mines)

There were 259 entries this year. They moved the exhibition from the Boulder Town Hall to Kalgoorlie due to the earthquake damage at the beginning of the year.  Great venue!
