The newest Street Art Festival on the scene hit a home run with its inaugural event Pave the Way to Gular in 2018.
The Zest team helped to lay the foundation for the event, paving the way for Gulargambone to be added as a must-see stop on the national Silo Art trail.
Kingfisher takes a Lucky Dip
Feature Artist Jenny McCracken ticked an artistic goal off her bucket list and created a 3D mural on the Gulargambone water tower. As you travel through the town, this tall cool glass of water rises up over the local footy ground.
Her design ‘Lucky Dip’ highlights the importance of water as an essential resource and the struggle over its allocation. A concept very pertinent to this small community currently in the grip of drought.
The Great Wave of Wheat
Rudy Kistlers mural can be found running the length of Ferguson’s Corner Store. The design is a nod to Hokusai’s ‘Great Wave off Kanagawa’ and the agricultural landscape found around Gulargambone.
Street Art to Entertain
A hop, skip and a jump toward the local school and you will find the 3D artwork Rudy created as part of a workshop with the children at the school.
Rudy even found the time to create this little 3d guy, to keep the crowds engaged during their visit to the Festival.
The town of Gulargambone is smack bang in the middle of the sheep-wheat belt of NSW. Like many small country towns, activity in the CBD has been slowly declining.
The introduction of 10 renowned street artists has not only given the town a facelift, its become a destination for tourists and locals to stop and look around. Both of these factors go a long way to lifting the spirits of the local farming community.
