Flame 2020 | International Women's Day Exhibition

Sat 29 Feb - Tue 24 Mar

Please note: This exhibition was closed to the public at 12pm, 23 March 2020, due to the impacts of Covid-19.

The Tank 4 Gallery (exhibition space) is closed until further notice.

Council’s key priorities remain the safety and wellbeing of staff and the community and continuity of services, as appropriate.

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

Eight established women artists in Cairns, Atherton Tablelands and Mossman were asked to mentor emerging artists, whose talent had been identified in the 2019 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.
