Our fourth Pave the Way to Gular Street Art Festival used 3 newly installed Billboards on the Riverwalk as canvasses for 6 artists to paint provocative concepts such as climate change, mental health, animal extinction and Biodiversity to add intrigue and stimulate conversations.

As well as billboards, the old service station at the corner of Bourbah Street and the highway have been painted by visiting stencil artists.

The line-up this year included well-known artists Kasper, Suki, Zac Craig, Viki Murray, Manda Lane, Michael Bourke, Leo Uribe and local Gamileroi man Frank Wright.

Artists have designed provocative concepts referencing mental health, climate change, animal extinction and other environmental and political issues, promising a myriad of interesting and exciting live paintings and large-scale works.

In addition, the murals, amplified by small metal sculptures attached to the framework, help to blend the structures into the environment.

There was also be a street party to close the festival including live entertainment, a range of market stalls including food vans, and workshops while taking the opportunity to meet the artists and get to know the locals.

Proudly supported by Festivals Australia, RISE Fund, Regional Arts NSW, Country Arts Support Program (CASP) 2022, Outback Arts, Create NSW, Coonamble Shire Council, Dulux, CRT and Gulargambone Co-op.
