No words are needed for Alastair Taylor's illustration above which perfectly expresses the joys and frustrations felt by the committee driving the Community Pavilion Project.
Alastair, who also paints and creates clock sculptures has lived in Darlington for 12 years and won the inaugural Darlington Arts Festival, Robert Juniper prize for landscape painting in 2016 and the Painting Category at the 2017 Exhibition. He was runner up in the 2018 Collie Art Prize and won best in show at Ellenbrook and the sculpture prize in Kalgoorlie. He recently embarked on a large portrait exhibition which will open in Collie in December 2019.
His work is currently on display at the Mundaring Arts Centre and Juniper Galleries in Darlington.
Alastair has also created a print for the Pavilion Project which will be on display at the DAF Exhibition. Copies will be available to order, with all proceeds going towards Stage Two of the Pavilion.
His generosity has given the committee a much needed boost. Right now it feels like we are climbing Everest and more Sherpa's are urgently needed to help us complete the challenge!!
Fundraising continues so that stage 2 can commence in the new year.
