Creative Burnside

An exhibition by 2017 recipients of City of Burnside artist and public art subsidies

19 January – 9 February 

The Local Artist Support, Promotion and Development Subsidy scheme has successfully supported many artists over the past 2 years with subsidy grants enabling individuals to achieve excellence and innovation in their arts practice. Projects have covered both skills development and profile building. The City of Burnside has been proud to provide this support as recognition of the creative and artistic diversity in our community and the role this plays in the building of strong communities and contributions to the economic and social development of the area.

Recipients participating in the exhibition are from diverse fields including Yvonne Ashby, Pamela Altschwager, Helen Favretto, Denise Fowles, Crystal Gaye, Elisabeth Howlett, Michelle Jahn, Bruce Paton, Jane Skeer and Jeff Trahair. 

Also referenced in this exhibition are the public art grant recipients and Decorate to Celebrate artists who have taken their art to our streets and parks to improve our city scape.
