The official opening of Wanderlust, which displays winning artworks from the 2018 Queensland Regional Art Awards, will be the centrepiece of a new half-day arts festival in Toogoolawah.

The inaugural Somerset Art Beat Festival will be held at The Condensery at 29 Factory Road in Toogoolawah on Saturday, June 1.

Apart from showcasing the Wanderlust touring art exhibition, the event will have market stalls featuring handmade creations from artists across multiple disciplines, live music and dance performances, and exotic foods.

Somerset Regional Council Mayor Graeme Lehmann said the festival would be a great day out for locals and visitors alike.

“This is a family-friendly festival and I encourage everyone to come along, bring their family and friends and celebrate everything that is great about arts and culture,” Mayor Lehmann said.

“There will be plenty of acts to provide entertainment and engaging stalls for children and adults to participate in. And best of all, it’s free.”

The festival will run from noon to 4:00pm.

Wanderlust will be on display at The Condensery art gallery from Thursday, May 23.

The Somerset Art Beat Festival is being supported by Somerset Regional Council in partnership with Creative Alliance.
