Recycled art showcases new beauty

Alan Meyburgh and Anita Revel are two of many Capes artists who will exhibit work at Dunsborough’s ninth annual Sculpture by the Bay this weekend.

The event, which is part of the Dunsborough Arts Festival, attracts work from artists Statewide.

Meyburgh’s piece Nature’s Corridor is a steel structure made from recycled materials and serves as a bench.

He said the artwork connected city and nature and repurposed old materials.

Revel’s artwork was made from trampoline springs, cord and steel, and is titled Ostara after the German goddess of new life and the origin of the word Easter.

“I pieced it together with the intention it can be used as a centrepiece for wedding ceremonies,” she said.

Revel, also a marriage celebrant, said the recycled materials reflected a “new form of new beauty” and fitted with the wedding theme of new beginnings.

Sculptures will be on display from tomorrow until Monday afternoon at the Dunsborough foreshore on Geographe Bay Road, opposite Seymour Park.
