Framing the Wimmera project is based on taking pictures of our landscape, positioning the lens to frame an image, capturing the essence of the moment or the beauty of the environment.
Nati Frinj festival founder and local artist Dr. Greg Pritchard installed a large wooden frame outside Natimuk that framed Mt Arapiles. For over several years, it captured people’s photographic attention and connected them to this iconic vista of the Wimmera.
The Age journalist Kim Smee described the frame as “the most beautiful work of art I’ve ever seen”.
Inspired by the success of this installation, Horsham Rural City Council Public Art Committee commissioned four permanent structural frames to frame outstanding views of the municipality.
So why not visit the beautiful frames created by Banyena Artist Donal Molly-Drum and tag your images #framingthewimmera or facebook/framingthewimmera.
