Celebrate the work of Hervey Bay environmental advocate Alan Peebles.
Between 2003 and 2009, Hervey Bay wildlife enthusiast Alan Peebles painted 103 murals of local bird species on bus shelters throughout the Fraser Coast region. Twenty years on from the first of these murals, Hervey Bay Regional Gallery presents a celebration of the generosity, vision and community spirit of Peebles’ bus shelter project. Presenting a selection of murals alongside his self-published wildlife documentaries, Alan Peebles: Bird Man draws on Peebles’ passion for the region's wildlife, forming a charming and idiosyncratic portrait of Hervey Bay through the eyes of one of its prominent advocates.
Join us for this special Saturday morning opening event, including opening remarks by Tina Raveneau, Robert Garland and exhibition curator Llewellyn Millhouse.
