From learning about the history of Bunbury’s two cathedrals, to watching new technology be printed in front of your eyes through 3D printing, the 2015 Tree Street Art Safari had something for everyone! With maps in hand, the ‘audience’ set off on a self guided walking tour of artist’s studios and gardens within a few blocks of Bunbury’s CBD. At each studio, the artists were able to share their journey’s and demonstrate their technique. Many artists work alone, so the chance to share their studio with people was a welcome change.

The Art safari takes its inspiration from New Zealand, where artist Kerry Gelmi had the pleasure of seeing inside some of their hidden studios. “It is a hugely popular event in New Zealand, and sells out overnight. These places are never open, so it’s a wonderful opportunity for the whole community.”

With painting, printmaking, drawing, textiles,sculpture, architecture, jewellery, garden design, and 3D printing technology people had a variety of interests to learn more about. All work had been produced by the artists,  who relished being able to demonstrate their techniques and talk about new projects and collaborations. In addition to the artist’s studios, both Bunbury’s Cathedrals were open to view the stained glass. Both had tours explaining the history of the building and particularly their beautiful stained glass windows.

The event was rounded off with a Mexican cantina fiesta at Walker Hall behind St Boniface Cathedral. Wine by Fifth Estate and fantastic entertainment by Codee Lee and Blair Whittle ended the night on a huge high!

This was a journey of discovery that is sure to inspire, with next year’s event already being planned to include more tickets and more artists! The amazingly motivated people behind such projects are why Stylo is so proud of Bunbury. Hope you enjoy this pictorial journey as much as the participants enjoyed their Safari.
