Meet our members – Toni Harris

Toni Harris, local artist, winner of the 2021 Rutherglen Tastes of Art Photography (creative) prize, and Arts Rutherglen committee member talks about her art practice, current work and upcoming exhibition in the Ballarat Foto Biennale. Why do you make art? We all have a talent /passion that we think or hope that we are good at. Some people are good at sport, some writing, some music etc. For me art is my way of expressing myself against what it is I think I am good at. What informs /influences/inspires your artwork and how is this expressed in your art?

Tommy McRae Tribute- Stage 1 at Lake King

It is a replica of a 1890 drawing, by Tommy McRae’s, from his Bremnar notebook (housed at the National Library). The sculpture has been endorsed by Tommy McRae’s family.  The sculpture was fabricated and erected for Arts Rutherglen by The Agency of Sculpture, Yackandandah. Now that the Stage 1 work is in place – the information board will be finalised at the Rotary deck and we will consider our options to progress Stage 2.  Visit Rutherglen Park, enjoy this
