Cairns Art Gallery
Cairns Art Gallery is Far North Queensland’s only visual art museum.
Housed in a refurbished heritage building in central Cairns, the gallery incorporates four individual exhibition spaces inside the building, showcasing an average of 30 exhibitions per year, and featuring the work of National and International artists, with a strong focus on local and indigenous works of art.
The Gallery is also accompanied by a stylish gift shop and cafe. The Gallery Shop has a wide range of functional, artistic, local and designer gifts at a variety of prices, the Gallery Shop can make finding that perfect gift an enjoyable journey.
Exhibitions change every four to eight weeks ensuring there will be something new to see every time you visit, with displays ranging from paintings, to sculpture, installations, photography and prints. A stimulating program of workshops, lectures and special events are held regularly to compliment these exhibitions.
Cairns Regional Gallery is a limited liability and non-profit organisation, and is controlled and funded entity of Cairns City Council.
It is the dynamic combination of the region’s cultural diversity, tourism and the distance from Australia’s capital cities that sets Cairns, and the Cairns Regional Gallery, apart from other regional arts centres.
