The art of Fire and Stone
The Fire and Stone Sculpture Park at Tabulam hosted a fundraiser for the Bonalbo/Upper Clarence Lions Club, grossing $13,000 that will be used for community projects in the region.
One of Keith Cameron’s giant chairs was auctioned for $2400 that will go towards an overseas aid fund.
The park is a 500 acre property owned by sculptor Keith Cameron. Most of the massive sculptures on the site are his own work, but there are also a couple of pieces by Mic Eales and Paul Spooner.
The event also marked the official opening of the new Fire and Stone Gallery (for two dimensional works) by Sidney Baillieu Myer AC, co-founder and past president of The Myer Foundation. About 200 people attended and several artists work was exhibited and sold.
As well as exploring the open air sculpture gallery, there was a three course meal prepared by local chefs and music performed in the rock amphitheatre that was also built by Keith.
Now in its fifth year, Keith said it was “probably the biggest community day of the year out here, combining a bit of art with some community fundraising.”
