Once again the Wooli Artist Gathering (WAG) has impressed with a successful 2015 art show and a generous donation to CCPA-Wooli.
CCPA’s admiration and appreciation toward WAG is captured in Bruce Bird’s letter below to WAG’s new leader, Kathleen Hull and her helpers ( one of whom, Nick Hill is seen here beavering away the day before the show).
Dear Kathleen and the Art Show Helpers,
Thank you for the summary of the ArtShow financial details it would appear that the 5th Wild About Wooli ArtShow was a huge success. This was a result of the wonderful work put in by yourself and the band of willing helpers.
As the first show without the guiding hand of Leone, it must have been more than a little scary to take it on. It is great to know that the event is in such capable hands, and bodes well for future shows.
Many comments were heard about how well the art works were displayed, and also about the fantastic standard of the works that were entered. It was a great, and well-organised, weekend.
This letter is to extend a very heartfelt thanks to WAG for the generous donation of $1656 to CCPA-Wooli from the ArtShow proceeds. Our funds, which are being used for beach process research, surveys, dune regeneration, as well as a contribution to a beach nourishment program which is getting under way, will feel a lot healthier for this generous gesture. The great thing about WAG ‘s contribution is that it came from a community-based effort that has become an important date in Wooli ‘s calendar.
Once again, from CCPA and members, thank you very much.
Bruce Bird, President, CCPA-WOOLI
