Artist Camp September 2015

Another group of artists gathered once again at the Bimblebox camp site to experience the immersive tranquility of that remote place, letting busy minds unwind and be released into more speculative and gentle moods, buoyed by the company of other creatives, by Paola’s wonderful cooking and intelligent concern, and by a landscape living and ancient.

Alan imprinted maps of the Galilee Basin in coal dust around the camp site, making evident the threat of destruction that hangs over Bimblebox. They were quite spooky.

  1. The Bimblebox Art camps just go from strength to strength with the varied artistic interpretations of this beautiful, peaceful refuge. I look forward to seeing the Yellow Jacket tree art pictured as they make such a wonderful contrast to the greens and browns.
    It would be wonderful to have all the Bimblebox art from all the camps held in one spectacular exhibition.
