The Flying Arts annual exhibition program is designed specifically to provide opportunities for artists, especially regional and remote Queensland artists, to reach out and connect with new audiences and new opportunities.
This exhibition is an outcome of the 2016 Queensland Regional Art Awards. The Awards aim to highlight the wealth of creative talent located outside the capital city, and to provide a platform for further professional development.
Artists were asked to consider what brings colour, vibrancy and life to their local community or region. The exhibition features the work of 35 regional Queensland artists.
Reminiscence pays tribute to Judith Wright and her life. On reflection Judith was a fiercely intelligent, strong and passionate woman who cared deeply about the land of her birth and the first people of her beloved country, Australia.
Artist, Fiona Rafferty and Ceramicist, Frances Smith have worked collaboratively to produce a body of work that celebrates and pays homage to Judith Wright. More Information
