Andy Scott’s Bull sculpture has been installed in Albion Park in Forbes.
The sculpture has been generously loaned to Forbes by the Kahlbetzer family – at the time owners of Jemalong Station - who purchased it at Sculpture by the Sea.
For Forbes Arts Society it’s an exciting addition to the Somewhere Down the Lachlan sculpture trail, which is rapidly gaining momentum.
The bull follows the installation of two Brett Mon Garling dogs in the CBD, and Eternity by the Lake Forbes walking trail. There’s more to come this year.
In Forbes on Friday morning to see the new installation was Grazing Down the Lachlan’s 2018 creative director Mark Olive.
Olive, Australia's most celebrated and renowned Indigenous chef, has been visiting Forbes in the lead-up to this year’s big foodie event.
He’s met with caterers and is working with local producers and sommeliers - between working on Chef’s Line for SBS and another season of On Country Cooking for NITV.
Olive is looking forward to bringing it all together for the epic long lunch on the stock route along the Lachlan River later this year.
He’s also keen to provide more opportunities for young people, especially indigenous young people.
Olive has been in discussions with local Indigenous people through the Forbes Dreaming Centre, and says the response has been great.
“They’ve really embraced it,” he said.
He’s hoping to draw the focus to the Wiradjuri people of the Forbes, Parkes and Lachlan district – particularly those from the Lachlan River towns.
Grazing Down the Lachlan 2018 is on September 22, Friends of Grazing packages are now available.
Focusing on foods native to the Central West region, the degustation menu for Grazing Down the Lachlan will be prepared and delivered by local restaurateurs and caterers. For more information go online to grazingdownthelachlan.com
