Wrap up: CIAF 2016

July 28, 2016

The van was a little lighter on the way back to sunny Townsville when we returned from CIAF2016. That’s because we sold a few prints and masks at this year’s indigenous art fair! The clear winner to us was the masks by our indigenous members made in a workshop led by Obery Sambo. They attracted so many visitors to our walls for a deeper look. Children and adults enjoyed them alike! We bumped into colleagues from other galleries, and the Australia Council CEO Tony Grybowski and Visual Arts Director Laura McLeod.

We shared a section with our good friends from Umi Arts – the comradery getting us through the long days! Our artists in attendance were on hand to share their stories with the visitors and media. A big thank you goes out to the CIAF Staff, the Tanks Install team, and our artists and other partners for playing a part in this great event.
