El­lis re­turns to Cairns Re­gional Gallery with new show

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

COOYA Beach artist Tim El­lis’s sec­ond ex­hi­bi­tion is about to open at Cairns Re­gional Gallery.

Open­ing on Satur­day and run­ning for four weeks ’An­i­mal King­dom’ fea­tures a col­lec­tion of Tim’s work of the last 12 months.

Tim’s paint­ings are large acrylics on can­vas that de­pict an­i­mals and lo­ca­tions from the re­gion.

Tim has been se­lected and spon­sored by the Cairns Re­gional Gallery as one of their emerg­ing artists.

The gallery is lo­cated on the cor­ner of Ab­bott and Shields St in Cairns.

El­lis por­trays an­i­mals against back­drops that, like sets on a stage, are the site of sto­ries yet to be told.

The of­fi­cial open­ing is at 2pm on Satur­day and any­one in­ter­ested in see­ing some lo­cal art that has been de­scribed as some­what dra­matic and mys­te­ri­ous, is wel­come to head down to the gallery un­til Oc­to­ber 13.
