Here’s the 2019 Waste 2 Art catalogue – see the amazing works from your region!
The 2019 Waste 2 Art Regional Exhibition is on from July 27 – August 17 at the Malachi Gilmore Hall, Oberon.
Entries from residents in thirteen member councils will be on show – make sure you visit and check out how baling twine, strapping and other waste items have been given a second chance at life in awesome pieces of art – just like this one titled ‘Powerful Owl’s nest’ by the Blue Mountains Community.
Made from soft plastics, strapping and discarded fabrics it’s a perfect home for the threatened Powerful Owl species found in the Blue Mountains of NSW.
The theme for this year is Baling Twine and Strapping but it’s not compulsory, you can use anything so long as it’s waste.
