From the Ashes- Lest We Forget

By April 27, 2020 The Arts No Comments

We are all consumed by Covid-19.  So consumed in fact, it is easy for some of us to forget the recent bushfires that wreaked havoc on so many in our community.

Over the next few weeks we will revisit those in our community who suffered personally during the bushfires and those who risked all to help others in need.

Mary Flaskas ‘Aglow’. BURNT. Pastel Drawing

Art Space Urunga’s Artists have combined to produce a visual and emotional response to the recent bushfires, called ‘Burnt’.  This exhibition was due to be exhibited in April. Unfortunately COVID-19 had other plans. So the collective of artists saw this as a good opportunity to change gears and get an online gallery happening.

This brilliant online exhibition evokes that sense of anxiety and grief that we all experienced during the bushfires. Don’t miss Pete Gailey’s emotionally charged documentary that shows the real after-effects these fires have had on Artists in our community, in particularly one of our own, Ian Watson. The strength of the human spirit is uplifting, as Ian manages to forge art from the ashed remains of his life. VIEW VIDEO HERE

20% of the sale price of each item from ‘Burnt’ is going toward Bushfire Relief.
