“What Dubbo Means to Me” – Macquarie Credit Union at Dubbo Show

Live art Major Mitchell Cockatoo by Jenny McCracken at Dubbo Show

Zest Artist Jenny McCracken spent the weekend at The Dubbo Show creating two stunning chalk pastel drawings for Macquarie Credit Union.

One of the pieces will be auctioned to raise funds for ‘Give Me 5 for Kids’ the local children’s ward at Dubbo Hospital.Under  the theme “What Dubbo Means”, Jenny produced ‘Major Mitchell Cockatoos’ capturing the native wildlife of the area and a second piece, “Dubbo Rail Bridge 1880. After Streeton.” The landscape was based on an archival image of the bridge and the colour and feel was inspired by Sir Arthur Streeton, a leading member of the turn of the century Heidelberg School, otherwise known as Australian Impressionism.

Jenny also designed the colouring in competition run by Macquarie Credit Union.  Children up to the age of 12 are eligible to enter.  Entries close Wednesday 11th June 2014 at the office of Macquarie Credit Union, 23 Hawthorn Street Dubbo.  Download the competition entry here.
