FNQ artists in Cairns gallery’s sights
AT least one Far North artist is expected to have their work purchased by the Cairns Regional Gallery for its permanent collection. Jason Smith of the Queensland Art Gallery will launch the ARTNOW FNQ exhibition on Friday night, when he is also set to announce the lucky local artist/s whose work will be bought by the gallery. “For an artist it is a really big deal to have their work purchased,” Cairns Regional Gallery development manager Janet Parfenovics said. The exhibition opening will be held from 6pm Friday.
