Check out the photos taken during our 2013 Wrapped in St Marys event – new images added today!

Here’s a taste of what you’ll see:

street art theme

Just so there’s no excuse for not having enough time to come up with ideas and designs, we are announcing next year’s theme early!

The 2014 theme will be (fanfare please!) – SWITCHED ON

The idea is to design and make a wrap for a power pole.  This is the street art component of our Wrapped in St Marys annual event.

Here are some of the 2013 connected entries, just to give you an idea of possibilities:

Size:  1.5 m high (maximum) x 90 cm wide (approximately)

Power poles vary in circumference – the smallest I’ve found is 86 cm, but some are over 100 cm.

The solution:  make your power pole wrap adjustable!

After the resounding success of our Wrapped in St Marys event, it’s wonderful to relive it through the many photographs that were taken.

Editing and uploading them is a mammoth task due to the sheer numbers of images.

However, I’m making good progress, and you can now enjoy the event virtually here …

Enjoy!

people’s choice award

Visitors to our 2013 event were invited to vote for their favourite power pole wrap, and did so with enthusiasm.

After votes were counted at the end of day 2, the results were extremely close, with only 1 vote between each of the top 3 choices.

And the winner is (drum roll please) – Kelly Farrell of St Marys!

Here is the wrap she created:

Appropriate subject too, since Mt. Elephant is a prominent local landmark!
