Experience Gympie Town Centre like never before. Follow the Lights is a self-guided evening walk that will take place around Mary Street and Memorial Park on Sunday 3 December – Tuesday 5 December. The walk will feature public art, UV art display, music, street art and projected artworks on walls, behind windows, in alleyways, in trees and on backs of buildings.
Sunday 3 December is Follow the Lights Family Night! Bring along the family and help to light the way through the Luminous Labyrinth lantern installation in Memorial Park. There will be projections, live music and performance art by Andy Ward(TBC), Lady of the Lights. The event is free, and there will be food vans in the park, so bring a picnic blanket and enjoy a beautiful evening of magical wonder under the stars.
Lead projection artist James Muller of Earth Base Productions has 20 years experience in the film, television and digital media industries, and his award winning projection works are often found in unexpected places and surfaces. James has worked with talented Gympie Youth (through two separate projects) to provide the artwork for many of the sites, with Memorial Park and Reef Street providing the canvas for his pieces.
Beneath the water’s surface lies a world of incredible colours and species that are no less than breathtaking. Award winning local Air-brush Artist Holly Hughes presents ‘Ultraviolet Encounters of the Art Kind’, a pop-up exhibition that explores the experiences normally only a diver would see.
This exhibit entertains, inspires and educates others about the underwater world and its breathtaking beauty using Ultra violet paints and Chroma depth technologies.
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world’s most famous and iconic natural beauties, but is in fear of its existence due to manmade constructions and arrogance. Ultraviolet Encounters of the Art Kind encourages people to become more aware of what we will lose if changes aren’t made soon.
Location: Gallery Pop Up Shop, 24 Mary Street, Gympie
Enjoy a special performance by Brisbane musician Andy Ward, accompanied by his own projected images on Sunday evening.
If you miss out on Sunday, you can catch the ‘Follow the Lights’ on Monday 4 and Tuesday 5 December as a self-paced walking trail.
