Carme Dapena - Cairns Butterflies, Stages of Life

Tue 30 Jul - Sun 18 Aug

LAUNCH: 6pm Friday16 August

The butterflies of Far North Queensland have always attracted the entomologists and artists alike – and occasionally, both.

Carme Dapena Gonzàlez is a painter, calligrapher, engraver, and educator, based in Spain. Her residency in Cairns is part of a collaborative study with biologist, Santi Ruiz for BetàniaPatmos School in Barcelona. Carme is fascinated with the stages of a butterfly’s life and their resemblance to her own personal stages through life. Using etching with watercolour and calligraphy, Carme will research our native butterfly species and produce an exquisite series that is both scientific and highly emotive.

Join Carme in her studio in Tank 4 and book yourself a workshop.

Workshops: Saturdays 10 & 17 August       Time: 10am – 12pm

Cost: $80 for both sessions.
