You might accidentally stumble upon it, wondering who made it, only for it to disappear again.
The Parkes Shire is going to be turned into a treasure trove of art, but not as you imagine it.
Ephemeral art is transient and not permanent, and will be popping up all over the Parkes Shire as part of the Teeny Tiny Art Festival from 11th – 18th December.
Ephemeral art, also called happenstance art, is not as solid or long lasting as permanent public works, but can definitely be every bit as profound (and often more fun to make).
Its scope is unlimited ranging from a tiny chalk drawing on a footpath, a painted rock placed in a public garden to an ice sculpture or a pattern created with sticks. Ephemeral art exists to intrigue us and in-terrupt our every day.
A workshop is planned for Saturday, 20th November to start its participants on a journey of making their own ephemeral artwork around town.
It will be presented by Deb Jones, Helen Standen, Elsie Mahon and Irene Ridgeway. Contact Roxanne at the Parkes Library on 6862 9101 to register your interest, or go to the festival Facebook page: PCAFestival.
