Eugowra's 2017 Murals Most Wanted weekend a success

Murals weekend a great success

Eugowra's Most Wanted Murals Weekend was a great success and a wonderful time enjoyed by everyone involved: the artists, painters, visitors and locals.

Run in conjunction with the 'Speed Shear' the events drew a large number of visitors to our town, and along with the locals and the Open Days at the Museum there was so much for everyone to enjoy.

The organisers wish to say a big 'thank you' to all the artists and sign writers who travelled ( and some very long distances) to Eugowra for the 2017 Murals Meet.

Thank you also to those who provided accommodation, to Eat Your Greens, The Bowling Club, Cafe 51 and Vicky Den for the delicious meals.

Also to the CWA ladies for their catering, the EPPA members, the Murals Committee, the business houses, Supermarket, the Gentle Cow, SES, to John Den and to all those who contributed in any way to a fantastic weekend.

A huge thank you to coordinator and leader Jodie Greenhalgh. Once again, a job well done.

The three outstanding murals created this year are all very different and show the skills of those fantastic artists and sign writers involved.

The 'Speed Shear' which was held in conjunction with the Murals was an outstanding success - results and photos will be in next week's Advocate.
