More than a mar­ket, it’s a beau­ti­ful morn­ing with live mu­sic, food vans and craft mak­ers. Rene­gade Hand­made will be held at the Mar­ian Catholic School Hall at 140 Cor­co­ran St, Cur­ra­jong, from 8am to 1pm.

5. DRAW­ING ROOM

Head to Pin­na­cles Gallery this week­end to see the lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion by Jonathan McBurnie. Dread Sov­er­eign demon­strates a re­con­fig­u­ra­tion of the act of draw­ing in re­sponse to dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies, cul­mi­nat­ing in what the artist terms “meta draw­ing”. Within the ex­hi­bi­tion, ques­tions of genre, form and medium are aban­doned for an in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary ap­proach. It’s show­ing un­til Jan­uary 28. More info at what­son.townsville.qld.gov.au.
