Community art windfall

MOUNT Gambier City Council has considered options to transform the giant stump that was once the largest tree in the Cave Gardens precinct.

The stump could be carved into a public art piece if council resolves to seek expressions of interest from local artists.

Sculpture at a reputed $18,000 plus ongoing maintenance fees? No thanks……………..the Father Woods and Dartmoor ones are bad enough in their sickly unnatural varnish finish. Use the wood for a nice bench instead, it’ll be useful, much cheaper and almost zero ongoing costs.
