Trundle has become the latest stop in the Parkes Shire Public Art Trail featuring works of local school students and community members. The Trundle Community Wall was unveiled last Friday celebrating the cultural and artistic diversity of the town.
“The Parkes Shire is emerging as a vibrant arts and cultural scene, and we are delighted to expand the Public Art Trail to include Trundle,” said Parkes Shire Deputy Mayor, Councillor Barbara Newton. The Trundle Community Wall is now showing ‘Trundle through young eyes’, featuring works created during a series of workshops curated by local Trundle artist Helen Gray.
“A fantastic group of people ranging in ages from five to 90 years old, met for four workshops to brain storm ideas about what Trundle mean for them,” said Helen.
The featured local artists are Maggie Anderson, Sophie Wright, Phoebe Wright, Isabel Aveyard, Brooke Morgan, Aliethea Stokes and Paddy Williams. The Community Art Wall is part of a series of community walls in the shire, with the iconic ‘Plus’ also featured in Parkes and Peak Hill.
