John and Edith Malycha with Twisted Tree by Barbara Parry, and Wombat by Irene Jeffrey made with wire from their farm at last year’s festival.
This year’s Peterborough Arts and Cultural festival is shaping up to be exciting and colourful with the theme of flowers.
The Peterborough Art Prize kicks off the festival with the opening and judging occurring on Friday, March 27.
Excellent works by artists from all over Australia will be exhibited in the magnificent Peterborough Town Hall.
This years raffle is a gorgeous watercolor by Graham Smith “The Farm gate”.
The goods shed has seen some activity in recent months with new works both wire and papier mache that will be on display during the festival.
Several pieces are contributing to this year’s theme.
The raffle prize this year is two fantastic bush turkeys made from wire by Bridget. They would look great in the garden so catch us through the exhibition or in the main street.
Peterborough Patch workers will put on a stunning display of quilts and crafts. This year’s challenge is poppies so go and see their exhibition and see who won the challenge.
This year there is a new exhibition of collectables. We have a few collectors here in Peterborough and they are generously allowing their precious collections to be on display. Come and check it out.
The festival’s markets in the main street will be a great place to pick up something special with a variety of art, craft, jewelry, soaps, olive oil, spices, food and much more.
Free entertainment while you browse the stalls from Clare Valley Concert Band the first week and a sneak preview of Chooka Williams at the Easter market will keep add to the festival.
The ever productive community gaden will be open for visitors to see how wicker beds can produce in the harsh desert climate. Please remember the beds are owned and cared for by individual plotters so please look but do not take.
The men’s shed is having open days to show case their latest project. The project involves making a two-metre replica of the last working passenger steam locomotive, the T181, using 3D printers built at the men’s shed.
The history group has been forever busy and will be running tours of the old print shop during the festival this year. This should be exciting.
For your entertainment during the festival Steve Poltz and Chooka Williams will be playing. Check posters around town for details and prices.
