Previous Exhibitions





The Townsville Watercolour Group has a long tradition of producing vibrant images of Townsville, its vegetation and animal life, mastering watercolour techniques to manage detail as well as enjoying a more abstract and contemporary delivery..


This exhibition by The Townsville Watercolour Group widens the group’s focus to include iconic images of the surrounding region; from the wet tropical areas to the north around Hinchinbrook, Magnetic Island to the east, Charters Towers and Ravenswood to the west and the wetlands and cane growing areas to the south. This year the group also embraces other media than their traditional watercolour.  A variety of media is employed from oils, Inks, pen, acrylic… either alone or with watercolour.  


The vibrant works will take visitors on a tour of Townsville and its regions.

An Exhibition By Jean Waddell

On show August 12th to September 7th 2012.

Jean Comments of Her Work:

"My exhibition is influenced by a trip I took to Longreach as well as the beautiful electric blue Ulysses and green Birdwing butterflies that breed in my garden.

After a visit to the outback whether it be flourishing with native flowers, in drought, fire or flood, I always come back to 'civilization' with a renewed spirit. My garden is also a relaxing bountiful source of inspiration as it gives me vegies, passionfruit and juicy citrus."
