It’s fair to say that resting is not exactly Arterium Angledal’s favourite pass-time.
The local photographer is known for diving head-first into life, whether it be work, play or a colourful combination of the two.
So when doctors diagnosed the Bangalow resident with a serious health condition and said he had to take it easy for a while, he was somewhat reluctant to take the advice.
‘He’s really not very good at it,’ Arterium’s sister Linda says with a chuckle.
‘But, seriously, the biggest obstacle to resting is financial. He still has to pay the bills which isn’t particularly conducive to resting.’
To help give Arterium the time and space he needs to heal, Linda has organised a fundraiser in Bangalow on April 28.
Put simply, it’s a party for Arty.
The event will feature sets from some of the Shire’s most popular musicians, including Si Mullumbimby, Shai Shriki, Dan Hannaford and Kate Leopold.
There will also be delicious food for sale, and a silent auction of Arterium’s photographic works conducted by Paul Hunt.
‘The intention is to celebrate all the things that my brother loves – music, art, fashion and just to make it really fun,’ Linda says.
‘The aim is to make it a really good night, and really family friendly.’
The event goes from 5pm till 10pm and the exact location in Bangalow is provided to each person once they purchase a ticket, which can be done at www.trybooking.com/BBUIF.
