Artists of the North 2017 - Cairns Art Society
Fri 07 Apr - Sun 23 Apr
LAUNCH: 6pm, Friday 7 April
The theme for the 12th Artists of the North exhibition, “Hot, wet and steamy in the tropics”, asks our regional artists to explore what is often a love-hate relationship with the extremes of summer in the tropics.
All the senses are roused as the monsoonal trough plunges, bringing long hot days and nights, downpours for weeks, floods, cyclones and huge ballooning storm clouds.
Brilliant colour with flowering trees and plants in red, orange, yellow, white, purple against vivid green. Nights of crying curlews, sweet-scented flowers, and the steady beat of rain. Clammy skin, tempers flaring, wilting visitors. Cool swims, beer and yummy mangoes. Family BBQs, board games. And mould, wet shoes and busted umbrellas.
How could a red-blooded artist resist?
