After debuting in 2018, Pave The Way To Gular is back this June long weekend, splashing more colour across the town.
On Saturday, 12 June, and in the few days leading up to it, artists John Murray (@mort murray), Viki Murray (@vkm_street) and Manda Lane (@mandalaneart) will be working their magic on a number of buildings, creating solo and collaborative works, incorporating botanical designs, stencilling and iconic Australian scenes.
Manda Lane is a practising artist based in Melbourne who specialises in black and white botanicals. She will be drawing inspiration from the local flora of Gular and exploring how these natural elements are recreated on urban environments. "Can't wait to paint the town black and white!"
John and Viki Murray are local Lightning Ridge legends who will also be joining us. John will bring his signature style, capturing the stories and humour of Aussie landscapes and personalities.
Viki's aerosol art is an extension of her photography. She take shots in the street (incorporating some Gular locals and familiar faces) and creates multi layered monotone stencils.
Our visiting artists will be creating solo works and collaborating on some exciting group projects!
The festivities will continue along Bourbah Street with a street party including soloist Brad Haling entertaining the crowds, a range of market stalls, installations and the unveiling of new sculptures.
Plus on Sunday, 13 June, the Gulargambone Bowling Club will be hosting a Day on the Green. The line-up includes Royden Donohue, Terry Leonard, Nigel Stanley, Steven King (Legend of Elvis).
