On Wednesday the 18th June, the CWA held a fundraiser in conjunction with the very talented Jo Marias. The fundraiser included a celebration of flowers and bush sculpture demonstration and lunch. Around 21 people from Bathurst, Orange, Forbes and Canowindra attended the event and all agreed that Jo Marias is one very talented lady.
“Her art work was absolutely amazing. She incorporated unusual material and found objects such as bark, wood, tin and flowers into her contemporary designs that made a memorable statement”, Bev Taylor said.
Jo also catered the event serving up a beautiful lunch for all the attendees including cous cous and salads.
Jo chose to host a fundraiser for the CWA as a community gesture, and everyone was extremely grateful for her preparedness to demonstrate her flower designs. They were also appreciative of her generosity of giving away her custom made flower arrangements that consisted of various seasonal flowers including orchids.
On behalf of the CWA, Thank You to those who attended and volunteered their time to help, and a huge Thanks to Jo Marias.
