    Event description

    As a part of the Brisbane: Landmarks, Landscapes and Personalities exhibition, RQAS is hosting a free plein air Paint Out session in Roma Street Parklands on Saturday, 25th of May at 10am. This is an opportunity for participants to socialise with other artists, create in a group and appreciate Brisbane. Participants will need to supply their own art materials.

    For the Paint Out the meeting point will be 10am at the lagoon in front of the waterfall (near the BBQ area). One of the gallery staff members will be at the meeting point to help everyone get settled. Attendees are welcomes to stay for as long as they like and paint wherever they like in Roma Street Parklands. We will also be taking a few photos of the event, please let the staff member know if you don't want to be in any photos.

    We will have RQAS brochures for attendees to hand out if any park visitors ask about the event. If you have any leftovers they can be dropped back to the gallery, or handed out to any other contacts you think may be interested.

    If you are wanting to park at Petrie Terrace Gallery, then catch a cab into Roma Street Parklands, please go to the Humanitix event page and purchase the ticket: “Ticket for a taxi to and from Roma Street Parklands”. We need to know how many people are wanting to catch a cab into the parklands ahead of time, as we will be booking a cab to leave the gallery at 9:45am. Anyone that turns up to the gallery on the day without preordering a ticket may not be able to be accommodated.

    After the paint out, participants are then welcome to come back to Petrie Terrace Gallery for the Closing Event of the Brisbane: Landmarks, Landscapes and Personalities exhibition. At the closing event we will be announcing the People's Choice Award! Nibbles will be provided and drinks are available for purchase.

    As a part of these events, anyone who attends the paint out or closing event, will receive a ticket that puts them into the running for a lucky door prize! The lucky door prize will also be announced at the Closing event. 

    Paint Out at Roma Street Parklands: 10am - 1pm (free event)

    Closing Event: 2pm - 4pm (Tickets available for purchase)

    Tickets for Closing Event:

    • Members: $5

    If you would also like to park your car near Petrie Terrace Gallery, you can pay for an additional $5 ticket which will cover a taxi to Roma Street Parklands, and another taxi back to the gallery for the closing event.
