Perc Tucker Regional Gallery will be the exclusive Australian venue for the major international touring exhibition WOW®, World of WearableArt™ exhibition in 2015.

One of New Zealand’s major cultural success stories over the past 25 years has been the spectacular growth of the WOW®, World of WearableArt™ exhibition .

This international touring exhibition presents the very best of the WOW®, World of WearableArt™ permanent collection; exciting AV presentations of the Awards Show; and a ‘workroom’ where visitors can delve more deeply into the story of WOW®, World of WearableArt™, try their hand at some wearable art design, and experiment with stage lighting.

A Permanent Mark: the impact of tattoo culture on contemporary art is a ground breaking exhibition that will explore and reconcile how two distinct industries - tattooing and contemporary art - are becoming increasingly interconnected. Tattoos and body art are central to many ancient cultures and civilisations, but it is the more recent popularisation and acceptance of tattoos in Western culture that has resulted in the artform permeating into the contemporary art sphere. A Permanent Mark: the impact of tattoo culture on contemporary art will display works by significant local, national and international tattoo and contemporary artists that evidence the crossover of styles, technology and techniques, themes and iconography.

A Permanent Mark: the impact of tattoo culture on contemporary art is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland
Research towards A Permanent Mark: the impact of tattoo culture on contemporary art has been supported through the Darling Travel Grants | Domestic, administered by the Gordon Darling Foundation

Exhibition dates:
30 June - 26 July 2015

Primary school students in the Townsville region engaged with the Art-In-A-Suitcase program and worked with local artist Ebony Russell to explore directional movement in art. Students viewed and critiqued artworks from the City of Townsville Art Collection , inspiring the creation of a figurative or landscape artwork from cardboard in a workshop lead by the artist.

The students explored complementary colour schemes, shape, form, cutting and layering to create direction and movement in their work. This exhibition is a collection of the works created by students from the various participating schools.

Students viewed four works from the City of Townsville Art Collection by recognised artists Roy Dalgarno, Juli Haas, Frank Hinder, and Robert Preston.

Art-In-A-Suitcase is a Creative Classrooms program that is offered twice yearly to all primary schools in the Townsville region. For more information on the program please contact the Gallery.

Amelia Ellicott has lived on Sampson Street all her life and is proud of two things: her prize Peking bantams and her garden.

When a storm breaks, her garden is changed forever and the neighbours finally meet.

Produced by La Luna Youth Arts Amelia Ellicott’s Garden is adapted from the picture book by Liliana Stafford and Stephen Michael King . Presented at the Riverway Arts Centre Amelia Ellicott’s Garden is delightful entertainment for children and their families.
