A dazzling array of artistic flair will be on show at the Blue Tongue Adventure Art Showcase on Friday December 1.

After the groundswell of community support for their first art show in 2021, the Blue Tongue crew can’t wait to see everyone again, and share what they’ve been creating!

Participants of the disability program are exploring their creativity with a diverse range of art works, using media including woodwork, ceramics, paint on canvas, digital art, and textiles. They’re also preparing to stock the shelves with a variety of Blue Tongue Industries giftware items, including bath and body products, candles, and jewellery.

Blue Tongue’s Tingal Road centre will be transformed into a vibrant art gallery for the big night, with drinks and canapes provided by Blue Tongue Pantry café in Thorneside. There’ll also be live music, performed by Blue Tongue crew member, Samuel Mammino.

The event will draw a crowd from far and wide, including members of Blue Tongue Adventure’s Toowoomba centre, who are also busy creating art works, and will make the trip to the bayside for the event.

“We’re so excited to showcase the beautiful pieces our crew have created over the last few months,” coordinator Sam Franklin-Wangman said.

“This event will uplift and inspire the crew to continue these amazing creations, and provide the opportunity to showcase their work to their friends and family, as well as inspiring others in the community”.
