About Art & Culture For Cairns

The colourful landscapes of Cairns and Tropical North Queensland still inspire many established and emerging artists.  A number of the artists on the National Australian comtemporary art scene are based in our vibrant art community in North Queensland. 

We also have a rich history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and regularly showcase their visual art at local galleries. 

Photographic artists have emerged as a predominant force in the local art scene and have opened many galleries that sell their images to the many visitors to this region.  These artists capture the beauty of the landscape in all conditions and have galleries in Kuranda, Cairns and Port Douglas. 

The Cairns Regional Gallery is located within a stately brick and stone heritage building on the corner of Abbott and Shields Streets.  This heritage building was renovated in 1995 and features a cafe/restaurant and a Gallery Shop. 

The Gallery exhibits work by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists as well as local fine arts and contemporary art and also hosts major Australian and international collections.  You can visit the gallery from 10:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Saturday, and from 1:00pm to 5:00pm on Sunday.

There is also a Gallery shop offering a wide range of Australian ceramics, jewellery, books and cards. 

Cairns Art Society has well over 250 members and was established in 1931 to promote and assist artists to acheive their aims.  The society plays an active role in the cultural and art community of Cairns.  The Cairns Art Society holds an annual exhibition and many activities inclduing dinners, and tutorials sessions as well as the very succesful and sought after annual ARTescape - Winter Art School in the Tropics. 

The Cairns Potters Club has a strong following of local potters who shape their clay with many varying methods and fire their creations in various ways including firing in the open.  Each year the Potters Club has an exhibition and they also generally have a market on the Saturday before Mothers Day.

Public Art
Artworks in public spaces in Cairns are an important expression of our creative diversity and reflect our unique society. 

The Cairns Esplanade has some new public art that has recently been unveiled. 

"Wind Blown Leaves" by Roland Nancarrow
"Telescopus" by Dominic Johns
and "Horizon Line" by Kevin Mayo.

"TELESCOPUS" a large mosaic shell sculpture that is designed in the shape of a shell that is commonly found in the mangroves and inter tidal mudflats around Cairns.  The sculpture has been created using iridescent mosaic glass tiles and Chillagoe marble.  Chillagoe is a very small marble producing township located in the outback about 4 hours drive west of Cairns. 

The spiral shape of the shell and design of the phosphorescent tile reflects the sky and lights up in the sunshine and moonlight without the use of power.  This really is a very pretty sculpture and something that we are very proud of.  It makes a very nice backdrop for photos and is located very close to the Floriana Guesthouse and the Cairns Base Hospital on the esplanade.

"WINDBLOWN LEAVES" is a Roland Nancarrow creation and is a freestanding steel sculpture with a resilient ‘new leaf’ standing erect from the windblown leaves surrounding the base.  Roland Nancarrow is inspired by local heliconia tropical flowers and has created many beautiful public art works.  This sculpture also reflects the nautical shapes of sails and boats often seen in Trinity Inlet.    

"HORIZON LINES" by Kevin Mayo are two sculptures in the shape of a boat stood on end with human figures cut-out within the boat shape.  The Dancer and The Swimmer are the shapes that have been cut out. 

These sculptures are all within an easy walking distance of the Cairns Base Hospital on the foreshore of the Northern end of the Cairns esplande. 

"JELLY BABIES" at the Centre of Contemporary Arts created by Sophie Cadman.

"Gilbert, Oliver, Penelope, Roxanne and Yasmin" is the title of this work and was created using fibreglass and acrylic paint. 

The delicious Jelly Babies are a very popular backdrop for many holiday snaps in Cairns.  Each jelly baby is equal in its form but has its own individual colour and is recognised and enjoyed regardless of age or culture as lollies! 

This is a great celebration of art and is a signature peice that identifies the Centre of Contemporary Arts in Cairns.  This is located on the corner of Abbott and Florence Sts. 

"WOVEN FISH" in the Esplanade Swimming lagoon created by Brian Robinson

Woven Fish was commissioned by the Cairns City Council and the Queensland Government for the Cairns Esplanade Redevelopment completed in 2003.  These recognisable woven fish are a standout feature of the Esplanade swimming lagoon and gleam in the sunlight making them the most photographed distinguishing feature of our Cairns esplanade swimming lagoon. 

"THE INNER CIRCLE" at the Reef Fleet Terminal created by Jill Chism.

This fired paper clay and resin sculptural work is a play with form and space using circle rings of Paper clay embossed from imprints from clothing and text from Taoist and Buddist literature. 

"BAYBARU" on the boardwalk near the Marlin Marina created by Paul Johnson.

These very interesting organic stainless steel and copper sculptural forms have been inspired by the sea anemome of the reefs and the funnel-net fish traps (baybaru) of the indigenous people.  These sculptures come to life at night with fibre-optic lighting. 

"CAIRNS" in 3 parts was created in 2001 by Jill Chism and David Campbell

This work was created during the City Place Revitalisation programme.  This stainless steel and phot-etched sculptural work is in 3 parts and is near the childrens playpark in the City Place.  The shape of this work makes a semi-abstract association with the mountains surrounding our city.  The photos are dupicates of the historical images from the Cairns Museum collection. 

"HISTORICAL BROOCH:SCHOOL OF ARTS was created in 2001 by Peter Thompson.

These panels of screen-printed vitreous ceramic are a reflection of the School of Arts history and architectural significance. 

"BUSH MEDICINE, REEF FIGURE, DILLLY was created in 2002 by Arone Meeks.

Arone Meeks has created many beautiful public art works in the Cairns region.  These three sculptural figures were created for the Cairns Base Hospital Redevelopment in 2002 and are inspired by indigenous forms and patterns using cut out painted steel. 

"TROPICAL BENCHES" was created by various work for the dole participants and managed by Dominic Johns

During the revitalisation programme of the city area during 2002, 2003 and 2004 working in a partnership with local unemployed people Dominic Johns inspired the artists and participants to create 85 square metres of handpainted and fired ceramic mosaic tiles depicting colourful tropical thems of North Queensland.  These tiles now form a series of 12 bench seats constructed along Shields Street heading from the City Place to Cairns Central. 

"TANKS ART CENTRE" was a project that was undertaken in the early 1990's that turned old oil storage tanks into spaces for performance and events.  This cultural precinct holds markets at times as well as outdoor movies in the evenings.  At the time of the original redevelopment many Powdercoated steel webbed fencing and sculptural pieces were created all around the centre.  This area is currently undergoing a new redevelopment but the original iron work is still intact. 

"Beautiful Art Spaces" There are also a growing number of council sponsored shops called beautiful art spaces. They are basically empty shops that artist are now occuping. These unique spaces are a terrific oportunitiy for arists to gain retail experience and also work in situa. There are a few in the Pier shopping Centre at the marina as well as orcid plaza, Cairns.
