2020 ART SHOW
On the October long weekend the Bouddi Society hosted an Art Show at the Wagstaffe Hall for local artists. The theme was 'Birds of a Feather' and it was interesting the number of ways that our avian friends were represented. Apart from paintings & prints of various mediums, there was some ceramics and jewellery. There was also a wonderful mechanism of the White-bellied Sea Eagle’s wing structure by Gab Paananen.
The Hall resonated to the sound of bird calls whilst a video of the birds of the Bouddi Peninsula was shown on the stage wall. This video was interspersed with the pre-recorded opening ceremony with Judy Nunn opening and reading bird poems by Judith Wright and John Bell interviewing Gab Paananen. (the bird video and opening ceremony can be viewed on the Bouddi Society website www.bouddisociety.org.au)
Even with Covid restrictions, the show was a great success with over 700 people attending over the two days. Sales exceeded $14,000 and the Bouddi Society made over $3,000.
The Bouddi Society would like to thank the exhibiting artists and the local community who helped to make the show so successful.
