Colour II Merv Moriarty

Colour II Merv Moriarty: In the Field & Out of the Allamanda

Part of the Flying Arts Colour and Response touring and exhibition project held throughout Queensland - Colour II: Merv Moriarty, in the Field.

In the early 1970’s, Bundaberg was one of the first venues for Merv Moriarty's fly in, fly out workshops, opening the way for other highly regarded art tutors to visit. In turn this invigorated the practice and careers of local artists and saw the birth of the Allamanda Gallery, a cultural hub with a significant impact on local artists. Five of those artists exhibit alongside Merv in Out of the Allamanda.

Colour and Response is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland’s Playing Queensland Fund.
