Rumba Auskick handed a gift

May 10, 2018

Artist Tammy-Lee Atkinson, Rumbalara Football Netball Club representative Kylie Briggs and Shepparton Region Reconciliation Group co-convenor Deirdre Robertson.

The Rumbalara Auskickers have received a handball target, thanks to a joint community effort from two local organisations and an artist.

Local artist Tammy-Lee Atkinson, Shepparton Region Reconciliation Group co-convenor Deirdre Robertson and GOTAFE worked together to build the piece.

‘‘Tammy did the painting, the Reconciliation Group did the board and GOTAFE made the frame,’’ Ms Roberston said.

‘‘A similar board was successful at Converge in recent years but we wanted one to reflect this area.’’

Ms Atkinson said she began painting about three years ago after studying a Visual Arts degree at Deakin University.

‘‘I went to Kaiela Arts in Shepparton and have been painting since then,’’ she said.

‘‘It’s relaxing, therapeutic and it brings connection to family and community.’’
