Interactive sculpture sessions with locally-renowned sculptor Rick Pettit (entry #1)

The R&R is proud to announce that we have attained the services of locally renowned sculptor Rick Pettit.

Rick will sculpt two, 4 metre-high Totem poles out of a single, hundred-year-old Turpentine wharf beam.

The Totems will commemorate the opening of the new retail shed, scheduled for December 2009 and when completed will be located at the main pedestrian entrance of the new retail shed.

Mr Pettit is generously donating his time to create the two unique carvings, which will represent the ethos of recycling through the time-honoured use of rebirth symbology.

Rick will create his masterpieces on site at the R&R and as a result, community members are encouraged to visit us at the Centre over the next few months to witness the emergence of what we anticipate will be extraordinary works of art.

NB: Due to the external location of the designated sculpting area, the sessions will be held during suitable weather conditions.
