Forbes’ recent ‘Waste 2 Art’ competition will go on display at Forbes Town Hall this weekend, after competition winners were announced during the week. Judging took place on Tuesday for this year’s Waste 2 Art competition and the winners were announced at the official opening at 5.30pm on Thursday, May 26 at the Forbes Town Hall.
The exhibition will then be open from 12pm to 3pm on Friday, May 27 and 10am to 2pm on Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29. There are five different categories – primary school, high school, community, open, village pride and annual waste theme (used tyres) and local winners will go on to compete in the regional competition in Condobolin.
Mayor Phyllis Miller OAM said she was pleased to see how many entries had been submitted for this year’s competition.“The purpose of Waste 2 Art is to encourage the concept of reduce, reuse and recycle and it is fantastic to see the creativity in turning waste to art,” Mayor Miller said. “I encourage you all to go along and have a look at the artworks as they are definitely worth a look.”
With the display running for three days only, ending at 2pm on Sunday, locals are encouraged to get down to Town Hall and view the works of local, talented artists before it closes.
