Barcaldine Mosiac Fountain
The pulse of the Channel Country...
Red Ridge engaged Windorah mosaic artist Margaret Stevenson in a Barcaldine community mosaic project at St Joseph’s Catholic School, one that brought attendees of all ages together to learn the art of mosaic! With a hands-on approach, Margaret Stevenson and the community of Barcaldine transformed the school's water fountain into a mosaic art piece to remember!
With concept designs provided by the
Central West Aboriginal Corporation
Manager Janeece Thompson, the mosaic represent the local river systems, watercourses and waterholes during the wet and dry seasons.
Supported by the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) which is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Barcaldine Regional Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
