Women in the Arts 2014 – Booked

 

WOMEN IN THE ARTS: BOOKED

Curated by Rose Rigley, this exhibition featuring artist’s books and text-based works, develops the literary theme further at KickArts Contemporary Arts, Cairns. Works on display reflect the delicate qualities of paper and break away from the traditional format of the artist book, exploring both text and sculptural form within this diverse exhibition. Works from local artists accompany a selection from Australia, the UK and USA. Booked is now open for viewing in the KickArts foyer until Saturday 22 March.

 

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY HIGH TEA

On Saturday 8 March Knock Knock  Contemporary Artists’ Initiative will host an International Women’s Day High Tea in the KickArts Contemporary Arts  foyer with tasty treats and the opportunity to dress for the occasion in Cairns. Guest speakers will include Far North Queensland artist, author and illustrator of children’s books, Jacque Duffy, and visual artist and PHD candidate from James Cook University, Angela Meyer.

So grab a friend and come along to this fun and fancy arts gathering in the KickArts foyer! Tickets are $20 per person and bookings are essential.

 

ARTIST BOOK WORKSHOPS

As part of Knock Knock Contemporary Artists’ Initiative’s 4th annual Women in the Arts exhibition event in Cairns, Queensland, the collective will be running two artist book workshops, demonstrating practical book construction techniques. Learn how to make and stitch together creative books of your own design using introductory book binding methods. All tools and materials will be provided in these interactive sessions. Skill-sharing and collaborative projects are a major focus for the group.
