Hearty congratulations to Red Road Cafe Saturday morning regular Tim Butler, winner of Swanpool Arts Festival's inaugural Swanpool Creative Recycled Art Prize!
"For the past five years the Bald Archy Prize has come to the small community of #Swanpool, but this year locals got some bad news: a change of sponsor meant the exhibition was returning to the city. The community got together and decided to turn a negative into a huge positive. They decided to start their own prize - for art made from recycled materials. It was a gamble that paid off with some wonderful work submitted by artists who might not usually exhibit.
#Tatong’s Tim Butler was named the inaugural winner of the SCRAP (Swanpool Creative Recycled Art Prize) tonight for his piece ‘Tin Man Begs for Ore on Yellow Cake Road’ which he made from materials he found under his 100 year old house.#euroastories"
