Nick Adams, Big Blue, sculpture
BIG BLUE HAS GONE TO GREENER PASTURES & IS NO LONGER ON DISPLAY IN DUBBO
A two-part, larger than life draught horse standing in feeding position, covered in bright blue hay string, Big Blue was completed in the autumn of 2015, by Tasmanian artist, Nick Adams. It was installed in the foyer of Macquarie Regional Library, Dubbo over the following winter and spring. Big Blue has been a talking point during its stay in the city. In his artist statement about the work, Adams wrote: I drew inspiration from my passion and love for Biodiversity, the Outback and Public Art, exploring the sculptural possibilities working with materials associated with agricultural and rural Australia.
Fishdog Jack Randell, Apollo House, mural
David Peachey and Aunty Pat Doolan feature with other local heroes on Apollo House Community Centre in East Dubbo. This project was completed after consultation about who best represented their neighbourhood. Aunty Pat Doolan has family up the road and David Peachey grew up across the street.
