Join us at Perc Tucker Regional Gallery for the screening of a short documentary which tracks the Families of Townsville street art project. Gallery Services in partnership with the LensCap Crew have taken historical portraitaure to the streets: follow the project team as they trace the history of some of Townsville’s founding families.

Date: Thursday 7 July Time: 6 to 8pm

Every first and third Tuesday of the month children are introduced to a range of art techniques through play-based and multi sensory learning.

Coinciding with The Percivals and linking with the city’s growing street art scene, leading Australian street artist Baby Guerrilla will visit Townsville to create a new work. Baby Guerrilla’s iconic, large-scale paste-ups depict floating and flying figures, and adorn walls around the country. Of her practice, Baby Guerrilla states, “Over the past couple of years I have sought to create a series of works liberated from the constraints of the standard picture plane. My intention is to make my work appear to defy gravity and to evoke a sense of wonder, freedom and escape. I am interested in approaching space and perspective in new and innovative ways that engage beyond the parameters of a gallery or traditional art space.”

Families of Townsville
