Artist Damian Cazaly stands with the mural to be finished during the coming week's festival and a smaller version of the in progress art piece.

THE Rochester Mural Festival is in its fourth year, bringing together artists and visitors from all corners of Australia and overseas.

Only eight artists are selected each year to paint their interpretation of the current theme which is Nature, her beauty and bounty.

The festival runs over seven days and has proved to be popular with the artists.

Many visitors also drop during the week and others stop and admire the finished work throughout the year.

The festival attracts a strong talented field of artists from many different states in Australia to compete.

Both the completed mini murals and full-sized murals are for sale.

The winner is an acquisitive award and this work will be displayed permanently in the Mural Park’s ‘‘Avenue of Honour’’.

Go and visit the festival, peruse the murals and take a look around the town.

A donation box is located on the voting tree if you would like to give a donation to assist with the running of the next festival.

■The mural festival starts on Saturday and finishes the following Saturday.
