The Never Ending Mural project in Ipswich

| 1 Comment

Over last weekend I went to the celebration event for the The Never Ending Mural project in Ipswich. This was a community-led project inspired by the Ipswich Art School Fundraising Appeal and brought to life by artist and curator John D Edwards (pictured below). The project began on Ipswich Waterfront in June 2011 with the help of more than 50 project volunteers, who have already spruced up the previously run-down docks area, which looked fantastic during this year’s Maritime Festival.

The exhibition that I attended this weekend featured the continuation of the Never Ending Mural onto the walls of the Ipswich Art School Gallery, as well as a wooden tree sculpture and gallery rooms of artwork from the contributing mural volunteers. Ipswich Art School continues to host weekly workshops every Wednesday 10:00 – 16:30 until 21st October, to offer further opportunities for artists & communities to participate in the ongoing creation of the Mural as it spreads across streets of Ipswich.

One of the pieces in the exhibition that I particularly enjoyed was by Fabiana Di Mascio. The artwork consisted of newspaper rolled into spirals and arranged on the canvas and is pictured below. I would love to buy one of Fabiana’s pieces and will be back to view the exhibition again while it continues to run at Ipswich Art School Gallery.
