Flame 2021 - International Women's Day Exhibition

Sat 27 Feb - Sun 21 Mar

LAUNCH: 6pm Saturday 27 February

FLAME is the exhibition outcome of a mentorship program to give young women experience in the professional arts industry.

Ten established women artists in Cairns, Atherton Tablelands, Cassowary Coast and Douglas Shire were asked to mentor emerging artists, whose talent had been identified in the 2020 ENERGY exhibition at the Tanks Arts Centre and SNAP exhibition at the Old Post Office Gallery in Atherton, two annual showcase exhibitions of our region’s best senior high school art students.

All of the artists have brought their own approach to working within a group, supporting each other as new skills are learned and new friendships are formed.

Launch: 6pm Saturday 27 February
Open: 9.00am – 4.30pm Weekdays, 10am – 2.00pm Weekends
