This year, the Co-operative is working on a main street beautification project involving a series of artist installations in the windows of five newly renovated shops. These artists include Alison Dent, Sam Wykes, Brian Campbell, Anna Kaineder and Ana Robson creating a mix of metal and wire sculptures, delicate paper works and ceramics.
Pops of colour and an interesting sculpture window gallery will lift the look of the main street and make the disused shops attractive, purposeful and drive traffic into the CBD.
Gulargambone is in the midst of enduring dry conditions. This project has helped to boost the town’s morale and sense of community, provide local employment as well as helping the local economy through tourists and visitors.
A collaborative ‘Paint by Numbers’ activity was completed with the students of Gulargambone Central School, to transform another piece of Bourbah Street. Illustrator, Shannon Keane, of Zest Events International joined the team for a day, creating a design on a 22 metre corrugated iron fence while the kids brought it to life. They created a quirky and colourful collection of animals, representing the rural community.
