Congratulations to Vera Bohlen of Claysongs Ceramics studio at The Park Ecovillage in Findhorn, and to the entire group of artists and volunteers who have put together such a spectacular display of Findhorn Bay related artworks for the Waves O’Flight visual art exhibition, which forms part of the 2018 Findhorn Bay Arts Festival.
The Kinloss Church Annexe has been transformed with art, crafts and photography, plus a lovely exhibit about the many lichens on Findhorn Bay, put together by local lichen expert, Heather Paul, and a collection of Bay wildlife ‘finds’, gathered by local naturalist and outdoor educator, Dan Puplett.
Some highlights from the exhibition are featured below… but you really have to see what’s on display there to experience its full immersive beauty and overall impact.
The centrepiece of the exhibition, the gigantic goose made from galvanised steel wire, taking flight over heaps of discarded plastic – plastic that has washed up on the shores of Findhorn Bay – is not to be missed.
The Waves O’Flight exhibition has only two more days to run – Sunday 30th September and Monday 1st October, from 11am – 4pm, so get there fast! The venue is Kinloss Church Annexe.
Also not to be missed – on Monday 1st October, there will be a special closing event from 6-9pm, featuring Clown Doctor Lesley Quilty and Eco-Poet Helen Moore, reading her beautiful poem about Findhorn Bay, as well as story telling, food, drinks, music… all by donation.
