A highlight of the month was Bass Coast’s very own artist in residence, Ulla Taylor, hosted by the Newhaven Residents Group as part of the Creative Gippsland celebration of the arts of Gippsland.
Ulla worked at Grayden’s Reserve in Newhaven and Newhaven Primary School, demonstrating the screeving technique, using the basketball court as her canvas to create a new perspective, with local flora and fauna featuring in the work.
She worked with hat on and pastels in hand creating a rock-pool scene between storms and rain!
Many visitors have commented that her artwork is really incredible and they were lucky to have seen it.
The Newhaven Residents’ Group thanked the artist with a celebratory community barbeque. For the residents of Newhaven, it is hoped that it will inspire the start of a discover Newhaven walk.
Ulla is based in Melbourne and has travelled throughout Australia and the world with her art, from Shark Bay to Toronto, Kobe to Klaipeda, and has over 27 years' experience creating public art at grassroots level. You can find out more about her at www.ullart.com
