Movers and Mosaic’ers
The Thevenard Ratepayers and Residents Group (TRRG) are very happy to let everyone know that they have successfully completed the mosaic on the back of the half-court wall in the triangle park at Hambidge Street, Thevenard. They are very grateful for the funding from the project’s major sponsors, including Country Arts SA (through the Australian Government Regional Arts Fund) who contributed $9,100, District Council of Ceduna ($2000), the Ceduna Foreshore Hotel Motel ($500 plus artists accommodation around $600), and WestArt ($500). They have all helped to fund this community artwork.
Michael Tye, the mosaic artist who designed the Serpent Mosaic on the Aboriginal Arts and Culture Centre wall and the Lighthouse Seamen’s Memorial at Thevenard, also designed this mosaic. His design drew on ideas from the TRRG and the artists from the Aboriginal Arts and Culture Centre in Ceduna. Once both parties approved the design, he came to Thevenard and to get the locals started on the creation of the mosaic. Then, with the mosaic finished and ready to be installed, Michael returned to complete the project over three days last week.
Chris Gascoyne was the driving force and artist throughout this project. Along with her husband John, they provided the space for the work, which meant sacrificing their home patio area for the project for around four months. Chris and Mike were both grateful for the help of other local volunteers throughout the project and Chris gave special mention to Lyn Keanelly saying she was there to help almost every day with the cutting of the tiles.
Congratulations on a great effort and a job well done!
