2012-13 : Artslink Queensland exhibition. Two years touring regional Qld.
Noel's Re-tuning the Goanna solo exhibition was part of the Queensland Arts Council's touring exhibition program for 2012 and 2013. His exhibition of mixed media wall panels and sculptures was hung in regional galleries around the state.
Joining fellow Emu Park artists, watercolourist Lyn McClelland and naive painter Bob Stack, Noel took his intricate sculptural pieces south-westward to the creative hub of the Goombungee and the former Rosalie Shire just outside of Toowoomba in south Queensland.
