Mt Wilson & Mt Irvine Spring Art Festival Photography and Art Exhibition

Plans are well under way for the fourth annual Mt Wilson & Mt Irvine Spring Festival Photography and Art Exhibition on Saturday 10th (10 am to 4 pm) and Sunday 11th (10 am to 3 pm) October 2015 in the Village Hall at Mt Wilson. Who would have thought that a simple suggestion back in 2012 to hold an exhibition of photography and art to raise much needed funds for the Mt Wilson/Mt Irvine Rural Fire Brigade would have resulted in four years of fun in promoting artists both local and from far afield. On our second year in 2013 we had to postpone the event for a month due to devastating bush fires that cut off these small mountain villages, destroying homes and property. Then in 2014 it snowed three days before bringing down trees and power lines but luckily the event went ahead and was a huge success. On each of these occasions the local fire brigade worked hard to protect properties, clear fallen trees and reopen roads to restore normality back into the community. This type of volunteer work goes on all over the Blue Mountains and in all rural communities and the exhibition is one way to say a huge thank you to all those who volunteer their time and risk their lives during these catastrophes. So why not join in the fun of the weekend, visit the exhibition, enjoy something to eat at the village hall, wander through the villages and take in the beautiful gardens. There are special events being held over the weekend, from escorted garden walks, open gardens, bird walks and a landscape photography course – so if you would like a brochure then please send me a bubble mail to arrange one.
