Artists Invited to Submit Designs for Mona Vale Cemetery
you’re an artist looking for a unique opportunity, then Pittwater
Council is calling for proposals for a commission opportunity at Mona
Vale General Cemetery.
The designs of four artists will be chosen to be rendered into bronze
plates, which will adorn four new granite memorial walls at the
Council’s Cemetery Officer Nadine Phipps said four new granite memorial
walls have recently been installed at the cemetery, catering for the
memorialisation and placement of cremated ash remains.
“The exterior of the walls will feature individual plaques for people
to honour a loved one with a permanent memorial,” said Ms Phipps.
“We are inviting the local artistic community to help to beautify
the wall by submitting drawings for the decorative panels - the idea
being to depict a scene from life in the Pittwater area.”
Ms Phipps said there are four identical memorial walls, each comprising
three faces with a central panel on each face. The central panels are
where the successful artists’ designs will be rendered in bronze.
“Each wall will showcase three of the chosen artist’s designs, which
will be selected through an assessment process,” Ms Phipps added.
A payment of $1000 will be paid to each successful artist.
For more information call 9970 1341. For submission guidelines please
close Friday 30 May.

Doggy Do's and
Don'ts with Steve Austin
your dog a scally-wag? Does he run away from you when you call his
name, or repeatedly get his head stuck in the kitchen rubbish bin? Or
perhaps he is a bully to other dogs? If your pooch needs a ‘talking
to’, then it’s time to meet dog trainer extraordinaire Steve Austin.
Pittwater Council has engaged elite dog trainer Steve Austin to help
with your issues. Steve will be available Sunday 22 June
for a FREE session at Rowland Reserve from 9am-12. It’ll be a
fun and informative morning where he can answer all your doggy-related
questions; particularly when it comes to obedience.
Steve realised at the age of 13 he had a special way with dogs as he
trained his dog Sooty to entertain crowds outside the pub.
These days Steve is often invited to lecture and help at zoos around
the world. He’s also a regular at American Law Enforcement Agencies and
was asked to train dogs in bomb detection at the Mount Everest Kennel
Club in Kathmandu. Steve also trained the first ever truffle detector
Most recently Steve was chosen to head the NSW Emergency Volunteer
Canine Fire and Rescue Unit. This unit - the first of its kind in
Australia will be deployed to help with recovery efforts during
tsunamis, earthquakes, fires and floods.
The main focus of the session will be on dog training, dog park
etiquette, obedience and social skills. No bookings required, just turn
up with your four-legged friends and let the fun begin!
