Trashy Fashion and Waste 2 Art

This past weekend, The Broken Hill Art Exchange and Lifeline Broken Hill – Country to Coast collectively challenged people’s perceptions of waste, with the culmination of two events, Friday night’s ‘Trashy Fashion’ fundraiser, and Saturday’s awards ceremony of the Waste 2 Art competition.

The Waste 2 Art exhibition continues until this coming Saturday so there’s plenty of time to take a look.

Sixty-three entrants from primary and secondary school students, community members, and professionals, had their artworks on display at the Lifeline Tip Shop, with a three-person judging panel made up of Broken Hill City Arts Gallery Manager, Kathy Graham, Barkindji artist David Doyle, and Margot Muscat who had coordinated the competition at Central Darling Shire previously.

The winners of the Waste 2 Art competition are:

  • Fast Fashion Behemoth – Jason ‘n Bec (Professional Artist)
  • Cumbungi – Dale Rushforth (Community Art)
  • Dolly – Sue Williams (Community Functional Item)
  • Me – Callaghan Shepherd (High School)
  • Reader the Kangaroo – Cade Webb (Primary School)

The Waste 2 Art exhibition will continue to be on show at the Lifeline Tip Shop (1 Wills St) until Saturday, June 24 during opening hours (8.30am to 4pm on weekdays and 8.30am to 1pm on Saturday). The public are invited to vote for the People’s Choice award, up until the end of the exhibition this coming Saturday.
