Townsville people who are looking forward to the long weekend but haven’t made definite plans may be interested in browsing two new or newish arts spaces, the Drill Hall and She Speaks.
We discovered She Speaks, on Bundock St, a couple of months ago. We thought at the time that it was a very pleasant space, with lots of good art craft, and it has been growing since then.
Over the Easter long weekend, She Speaks will be closed Good Friday and Easter Monday but open for normal Saturday/Sunday trading 10am – 4pm. The gallery has just completed its major 6 weekly artworks rotation so there are plenty of new works on display.
The Drill Hall Studio hasn’t quite opened yet but an Easter Market, 10am – 4pm Saturday to Monday (19 – 21 April) provides a sneak preview of the kind of goodies that will be available there when it opens soon. It’s in Mitchell St, North Ward, so it’s not far from She Speaks and only a block from the Gregory Street Café Strip.
