Waste to Art

What’s happening with Waste to Art 2020?

Due to the uncertainty around Covid -19 NetWaste has cancelled the 2020 Regional exhibition which was due to be held July this year at Coonamble.  But this doesn’t mean your local coordinator isn’t arranging something  for you, several are hosting an online exhibition:

Bathurst info is here

Coonamble info is here

Gilgandra info is here 

Orange info is here

Coonamble will again have the opportunity to host the regional exhibition in the Outback Arts Gallery in 2021 and the theme of Steel and Aluminium will follow through too.

Most importantly, if you have created work for 2020 you can still enter it into the 2021 exhibition whether it was displayed online this year or not. So keep working on your amazing creations and we will be back with a bang next year!

2019 WASTE TO ART – OVERALL WINNER
GUS ARMSTRONG

Gus Armstrong has been awarded the 2019 Sims Metal – Waste to Art Overall Prize with his arresting portrait Prisoner encore . Gus is from Mid Western Regional Council.

Gus explains the origins of the work:

                ‘…Commenting on reflections of our globally changing society and the social frustrations of dealing with mistakes from the past. Feelings of constriction and tangible pain. The push for economic bearing heavy on our chests, choking the very habitat in which we are trying to control. Baling twine discovered in a hay shed, rotten on one side. Neck piece forged from scrap steel… ‘

 

2020 WASTE TO ART – YEAR OF STEEL AND ALUMINIUM CANS

Waste to Art is a community art exhibition and competition open to all local residents who reside in the NetWaste region. It engages the community and showcases creative works made from reused & recyclable waste materials.

Councils involved host a local competition and the winning artworks are then transported to a Regional Exhibition which is hosted by a different council each year. 2020 will see  Coonamble Shire Council hosting the annual Regional Exhibition. The theme for 2020 is steel and aluminium cans.

Waste 2 Art’s aim is to challenge peoples’ perceptions about ‘rubbish’ and to celebrate the reuse and recycling of waste through arts and crafts. Waste to Art provides an innovative approach to waste education, invites schools and community groups to take up the challenge and create a new life for materials that would otherwise have been thrown away.
