Update: Here are some photos from us setting up. It was great to see such a range of talent in all different mediums.
On the off chance that you may be in Brisbane city today, there is an art/gallery event to showcase talent and help raise money for the endangered Bridled Nailtail Wallaby.
Entry to the event will be by gold coin donation – all proceeds will be donated to the Bridled Nailtail Wallaby. Art may be sold on the day and a percentage of sales will be donated.
The Gallery is at Level 3, 400 George Street for all day viewing 9.00am – 4.00pm. There is some great photography, painting, sculpture etc.
There will also be a lunchtime gig (hip-hop artist, singers etc) 12:30pm – 1:30pm
The bridled nailtail wallaby is unique (endemic) to Queensland. It is listed as Endangered in Queensland (Nature Conservation Act 1992) and is only found on two protected areas and one nature refuge. Australian Animals and Care Australia (AACE) have worked with DERM to help recover the bridled nailtail wallaby. However, AACE have limited funds to look after their captive population of bridled nailtail wallabies and AACE is facing extra challenges with the repair of the wallaby pens (after damage from the floods) and the decline in the volunteer workforce. Donations to AACE will go directly to their work.
