The Malta Parrot
A few of our members recently had a unique painting opportunity. At the request of Pioneer Park representative Bud Robinson, they were tasked with painting The Malta Parrot. The macaw was designed and created by Goderich Blacksmith artist Jim Wallace. For those who may not know, the parrot was rescued along with ten crew members when the Malta sank near the mouth of the Bayfield Harbour in 1882.
The contributing artists are: Deb Grasby, Catherine Tillmann, Laura Brown, Trish Pemberton, Tom Grasby and Hazel Grasby. The Malta Parrot has now been added to the salvaged remains of the Rudder installed in Pioneer Park. Next time you are walking in the park, stop by to admire this tribute to an historic event.
