A special art sale | Sunbury and Macedon chains

A mainstay of the community since it was born out of the Ash Wednesday bushfires, the Phoenix Macedon Ranges Art and Craft Group will once again present its beloved exhibition and sale.

The event, which will take place on December 3 and 4, will coincide with the Gisborne Olde Time Market on Sunday – a great time to pick up Christmas gifts.

Group president Kaye Taylor-Law creates stunning hand-painted and kiln-fired glass works, and said there will be a diverse range of artistic mediums on display.

“There will be textiles, embroidery, pottery, carpentry, card marking, oil and watercolor paintings, jewelry and puppets as well,” she said. .

“I think it’s good for the mental health of local artists to be able to do this in the first place.

“It’s a pleasure to think that someone wants your work on their wall, and the prices are very reasonable.”

Ms. Taylor-Law, a resident of Sunbury, uses her art to raise funds for the Four Winds Cambodia project, which focuses on health, education and income generation in a small Cambodian village.

She loves the sense of community that local art groups foster, encouraging new members to join the Phoenix Group as well.

“It’s about getting out there and enjoying the participation and enjoying the feeling and the involvement with other people,” she said.

“That’s how you get new ideas.”

She said she thought the day would be a success, with Christmas just around the corner.

“The older you get, the harder it gets, but it’s worth it,” she said.
