Burst2 exhibition for children under six

2 November to 23 December

Warwick Art Gallery will have a very special exhibition on display until the end of the year and we would like our youngest community members to also join in.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the infamous “Warwick Egg Incident” and this is going to be celebrated with a special display of objects from Canberra. The Egg Throwing Incident is so important is it was the reason that the Prime Minister at the time, Mr Billy Hughes, started the Australian Federal Police. A local man threw an egg at Mr Hughes because he didn’t like his speech and the local police did not want to arrest the man who threw the egg so the Prime Minister formed his own police force - the Australian Federal Police.

We would like our youngest artists to DECORATE AN EGG to go on display at Warwick Art Gallery from 2 November to 23 December 2017.


  1. The egg needs to be “blown”. This means that the egg is hollow and won’t go bad or break in the gallery
  2. Entry is FREE
  3. There will be prizes for the most creative and cleverest decorated eggs.

Deliver your decorated egg to Warwick Art Gallery by 4 pm on Wednesday 1 November with a completed entry form CLICK HERE for the form.

  • Always worth a visit - there is something new and inspirational to see
