The Exhibition Development Program returns in 2018! Led by experienced curators, participants will be led through all aspects of exhibition planning and execution.
Gain confidence pitching your work to galleries, get professional feedback on your exhibition proposals, and connect with like-minded artists. Participants from the 2017 program created their own informal collective, and held a group exhibition by the end of the year!
Queensland Regional Art Awards 2018 open for entries April 16
The Queensland Regional Art Awards is always a much-anticipated event on the Flying Arts calendar. Entries open in just a couple of weeks!
The theme this year is Wanderlust:
From dirt roads to rock pools, luscious rainforests to local festivals, Queensland is a state that inspires exploration. It’s full of diverse personalities, local legends and hidden gems valued by tourists and locals alike. Artists are asked to embrace a spirit of adventure to discover something unique about their own community or one that they visit within the state.
We can’t wait to see what regional and remote Queensland artists come up with this year!
