Friends of the Oberon Library are pleased to welcome Colin Fenn from Duramana as co-judge for Oberon's Waste to Art Exhibition, with Tom Buckland artist and sculptor born and raised in Oberon.

Colin Fenn, as a judge in 2015, provided a unique sculpture for our Waste to Art Exhibition, carving a pumpkin into one of his famous goblins. His little creatures, (all happy and none of them bad, but full of mischief), he says are simply objects of sensation and impression.

The power of the imagination, mixed with modern and in some cases quite inexpensive materials allow him to create in ceramics, carved stone and metals such as bronze, stainless steel, cast iron and also welded metals. His calligraphy in stone has enhanced many public and private memorials.

Entry forms for Oberon's Waste 2 Art Competition and Exhibition, prizes sponsored by Oberon Council and local businesses and service organisations, are available from Oberon Council and Library, on the Council website, on oberonfools.com website or Phone Kathy Sajowitz 0419 231 525.

Friends of Oberon Library are facilitating the Exhibition. The most outstanding works in each section and age group go to the Regional Exhibition in Orange where up to $900 in prize money is on offer from sponsors Sims Metal. 

Closing date for entry form hand-in is  Monday May 29.

The local exhibition at the Robert Hooper Community Centre runs from Wednesday June 7 to Friday June 10, 11am-4pm and Saturday June 10, 10am to 1pm.
