Art woos and wows the crowd
PERC Tucker Regional Gallery’s wearable art exhibition has been so popular people are vying to view more of the creations across the Tasman.
Crowds have flocked to the World of Wearable Art exhibition since it opened on May 29 and fans now have the chance to win a trip to the World of Wearable Art Show 2015 in Wellington, New Zealand.
Townsville City Council Community and Culture Com- mittee chair Sue Blom said the New Zealand show attracted more than 500,000 people.
“We are so privileged to have this unique and awe- inspiring exhibition travel to Townsville, the only Australian stop on its inaugural international tour,” she said.
“WOW has become an iconic event for New Zealand over the past 27 years and we’re excited to give two Townsville residents the chance to witness the creativity, colour and thrill of this fash- ion and art September.”
To enter residents need to create a miniature wearable art piece at the activity station upstairs in the gallery. One lucky entrant will win two return tickets to Wellington, two tickets to the show and two nights accommodation valued at more than $ 2000.
Entries close at 2pm on July 12 with the winner to be announced on July 17.
