Williamstown Library was recently the recipient of another of The Westsider’s news stands – part of the ongoing inner-west Newsstand Art Project.
Jodie & Andrew of Hobsons Bay Libraries gratefully accepted the stand and helped fill it with a ceremonial bundle of Westsider newspapers.
Artist Eva Klusacek was also present at the Friday afternoon hand over:
“I was excited to see such a great reception of the newsstand. I’ve really enjoyed working on it.”
Eva spoke about her inspiration for the maritime theme, reproduced in colourful enamel paints.
“We are relatively close to the shore, I wanted to bring the biodiversity of the underwater world and birdlife of Williamstown to life. I have had multiple snorkelling adventures around Williamstown – the underwater world is amazing.”
Eva’s work now proudly sits in the busy rear carpark entrance, and will be full of Westsiders. Head down to 104 Ferguson St, Williamstown and check it out, and grab the latest edition of the paper.
