Art competition reflects on Warragamba

Posted on: 06.08.2018

Local artists and creative community members have the opportunity for their original artworks to be featured on the fence of the new inclusive play space at Warragamba through a competition launched by Wollondilly Council this week.

The “Local Reflections of Warragamba” Art Competition is seeking artworks that are based on the theme “What does Warragamba mean to you?”

The competition is open from 1 August until 31 August and residents of all ages from across the Wollondilly are invited to take part.

Selected artworks or elements from them will be transferred to an electronic format for laser cutting onto steel panels, which will form part of the fencing at the entrance of the new play space, “Livvi’s Place.”

Mayor Judith Hannan said, “Many people have fond memories of the town of Warragamba, such as visits to the dam, the old Lion Safari or walks through the bushland.”

“We are looking for images that reflect what Warragamba means to the people of Wollondilly, and the final design may combine a variety of different elements that are submitted during the competition,” she said.

All artworks must be submitted on A3 size paper only. Free paper will be available along with entry forms at Council’s Administration Building, Wollondilly Visitor Information Centre, Warragamba Silverdale Neighbourhood Centre, Picton Library, The Dilly Wanderer and Warragamba Public School. Application forms are also available on Council’s website.

Artworks, along with attached entry form should be returned to Wollondilly Shire Council at 62-64 Menangle Street Picton by 5pm Friday 31 August.
