BDN – Sculpture Bermagui responds to bushfire impact with a ‘Spirit’ of its own

By January 29, 2020Uncategorized

“Our community has been handed a huge challenge after the decimation of the bushfires,” Sculpture Bermagui’s president Paul Payten said.

“However, now is the time to come together and events like Sculpture Bermagui are even more important than ever before.

“Not only will the event bring much needed visitors to our town, it will also provide inspiration and nurture the soul of our community and help us move forward.”

At the end of December, organisers received a record number of expressions of interest from artists and are now rallying their volunteers who help make this event happen every year.

Some artists and volunteers may have been impacted by the fires and may not be able to contribute, but the Sculpture Bermagui team is confident that it will be able to present quality, imaginative and beautiful sculptures for local and more distant visitors to appreciate and purchase.

“To further enhance our program, we are working on additional items of music and other activities to encourage our villagers and those from across far worse affected areas of our region,” Mr Payten said.

“Please keep an eye on our Facebook page and local news sources in the weeks ahead for further details.

“We also have our own mascot: Bermagui Spirit. This little soul will play an integral part during our Sculpture Bermagui event. She encapsulates the energy, potential and beauty of the region.”
