Event Details

Flying Art Alliance’s founder, Mervyn Moriarty OAM, was a legendary figure in the arts. He was an extraordinary art teacher and artist with a passion to bring the arts to the rural, regional and remote places. He learnt to fly to be able to achieve this passion.

Honouring Mervyn Moriarty’s legacy, Flying Arts offers the The Mervyn Moriarty Landscape Award as a category of the Queensland Regional Art Awards (QRAA), thanks to Consolidated Properties Group.

The prize awards a landscape artwork in any medium, in homage to Mervyn’s penchant for ‘en plein air’ landscape painting. In the 2022 QRAA ‘Reframe’ the winner of the award was Jan Strudwick for Sunday Morning – Ukraine.

Over 50 years on, thanks to the strong state-wide networks that Merv created, Flying Arts continues to provide transformative art experiences. The organisation has evolved from its early days, however the vision of Merv has remained steadfast.

Thanks to our award partner, Consolidated Property Group, the winner and finalists of the Mervyn Moriarty Landscape Award will be on display in an exhibition in the Judith Wright Arts Centre foyer and later displayed in the Brisbane office of Consolidated Properties Group from 13 March 2023.
