EOI: Christmas Tree Trail

Christmas may seem a long way off, but the City of Greater Geraldton is getting ready for the festive season and inviting artists to help transform wooden trees for a Christmas Tree Trail.

The multi-dimensional trees will feature in a prime location along Marine Terrace and showcase the artist’s interpretation of Christmas.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said it was a great opportunity for artists to have their work seen.

“It’s not every day that you get the opportunity to showcase your artwork in one of Geraldton’s most prominent locations, especially during such a busy time of year,” he said.

“The decorated craypots were such a hit last Christmas, and we expect the Christmas Tree Trail to be just as popular.

“I encourage all artists to start thinking about what Christmas means to them and get involved in this great project.”

Twelve artists will be selected to participate in the initiative and will be provided with a ‘blank canvas’ structure and plinth to transform and decorate.

Successful applications will be provided with $1,000 for the cost of materials.

Expressions of interest close on Wednesday 6 June and installations must be completed by Friday 23 November.
