MEET THE COOL LOCALS

ARTIST REGISTRATION

(Amphibians and Reptiles of the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve)

Arts Connect Inc

“Meet the Cool Locals” is a fantastic opportunity for members to exhibit in a contemporary gallery within the lush tropical rainforest. Expose your work to the hundreds of visitors that come through the doors of the Discovery Centre of the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve.  This will be a strongly themed exhibition with the focus on the amphibians and reptiles who call the park home.  If you’ve never worked creatively with this theme, now is your chance!  The closing date for this exhibition is Friday the 16th of July, so get cracking!

This exhibition will showcase our local amphibians and reptiles, especially those that call the Mary Cairncross Reserve home.  We are excited to present this strongly themed exhibition of artworks inspired by the many species of frogs, snakes and lizards and the environment in which they live.  If you have always wanted to know more about our local neighbours in the rainforest, come along and enjoy the show.

Meet the Cool Locals – Amphibians and Reptiles of the Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve!

This is a strongly themed exhibition with the focus on the creative depiction of our spectacular, diverse and interesting amphibians and reptiles who call the park home in either a 2D or 3D form.  Experience has shown that smaller pieces sell more successfully due to the high number of tourists passing through the reserve.
