Sunshine Coast artist Gordon Halloran has teamed up with students from Davis Bay Elementary School and Sechelt Sustainable Community (SSC) for his latest art installation that is a part of the 2016 Sunshine Coast Art Crawl. When Halloran got the go-ahead to create an art piece on the topic of water in the Sechelt Sustainable Community Garden, he had the idea of using as a main component locally-made Oyas, porous clay irrigation pots for the garden.
Davis Bay Elementary is actively raising money to build a community greenhouse for hands-on learning and the promotion of healthy eating. A group of Davis Bay Elementary students were chosen to artistically decorate the Oyas that will be used in Halloran’s art piece as well as other Oyas that will be up for sale during the Art Crawl Oct. 21-23 at the art installation site at 6583 Sechelt Inlet Road. All of the money raised will go towards helping establish the greenhouse in Davis Bay.
Davis Bay Elementary will be hosting an evening for community envisioning for outdoor learning space and welcomes community members and others to join, contribute, and envision with them on Oct. 20, 7-9pm.
