A KALEIDOSCOPE of colour has marked the launch of an art project that tells the story of Tamworth’s iconic Peel River.
Tamworth Regional Art Collective (TRAC) has spent the past few months designing and making tiles that represent our mighty river.
On the weekend, TRAC members and volunteers met by the Peel at Bicentennial Park to complete an impressive mosaic artwork that doubles as a seat.
It forms part of a public art project, The Changing Face of the Peel, which uses art to explore local stories and to illustrate how human use of the Peel River has changed over time.
To complete the mosaic seat, artists used a mix of commercial tile stock, including re-purposed and donated tiles, with original handmade tiles to add character and uniqueness to the design.
The exhibition will open at Tamworth Regional Art Gallery on Friday, December 9, while the public art will be on permanent display from Saturday, December 10 until February 4.
