Beaman Park Footbridge

Here is something for everyone.  The Marrickville Golf Club & Wildwood Designs is calling for ‘artists’ – really anyone who wants to have a go at painting, drawing, sculpting, using mixed media or photographing the Beaman Park Footbridge.

The wooden bridge crosses the Cooks River near the Golf Course Club House & Beaman Park Earlwood.  The current bridge is old & needs replacing.  In November 2013 Marrickville Council  & Canterbury Council sought feedback from the community regarding three proposed designs for the new bridge.  To see the designs on offer see – http://bit.ly/1fJ9TtZ

There are three categories in the Cooks River Art Prize – open, high school age & under 12 years.  The winner of each category will have a share in $1,000 prize money.  The submitted work will be hung on the cyclone fence next to the bridge for the opening on Friday 28th March 2014.  If the weather is bad, the exhibition will be in the Club House.

All entries must be delivered to the Marrickville Golf Course Club House by Wednesday 26th March 2014.   There is a $10 entry fee & all works will be for sale.  You would need to check with the organizers if you want to keep your work.

The entry form & more details about the exhibition & how your work must be presented can be found here – www.marrickvillegolf.com.au
