Queensland Regional Art Awards Winners Announced
We are so excited, once again, to make this highly anticipated announcement – an annual highlight for all of us here at Flying Arts.
We would like to congratulate the winners of and commend all entrants into this year’s Queensland Regional Art Awards. The number and quality of entries this year was exceptional, and emphatically demonstrates the wealth of artistic talent throughout regional Queensland.
More than 220 artworks were submitted to the competition this year – a record number of entries! The People’s Choice gallery, featuring all eligible artworks, attracted over 7000 unique pageviews during the People’s Choice voting period.
Thanks to the support of our generous award partners and the expertise of our judging panel, over 25k worth of awards and prizes has been awarded to nine regional Queensland artists.
The judges selected works by Jo St Baker (Redcliffe), Erin Dunne (Rockhampton), Shanoa Rea (Woombye), Meaghan Shelton (Imbil), Allan Tulloch (Ipswich), Barbara Cheshire (Gulliver) and Jane Dennis (Cooktown) for the sponsored awards. Ironlak’s People’s Choice Awards went to Scott Denholm (Moffat Beach) and Helenna Dohle (Linville).
A total of 29 artworks have been selected to tour in the Iconic Queensland exhibition, curated by Henri Van Noordenburg. Look out for the tour in 2018 in Brisbane, Toowoomba, Ingham, Emerald, Julia Creek, Munduberra, Childers and Warwick.

Touring Team Journal: Cherie Lynch
Flying Arts Touring Team member Cherie Lynch recently delivered a workshop at a school in Far North Queensland.
“I think anything workshop related is positive for schools and communities. It teaches people things they may not have tried on their own, opening door ways and possibilities into something they may want to pursue in the future.“

Thanks to Think Tank Communications we have 5 in-season passes to FINAL PORTRAIT. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, membership number, address and ‘Final Portrait Give-away’ in the subject line to claim yours!
In 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, the American writer and art-lover James Lord (Armie Hammer) is asked by his friend, the world-renowned artist Alberto Giacometti (Geoffrey Rush), to sit for a portrait. The process, Giacometti assures Lord, will take only a few days. Flattered and intrigued, Lord agrees.
So begins not only the story of a touching and offbeat friendship, but, seen through the eyes of Lord, a uniquely revealing insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and, at times, downright chaos of the artistic process. FINAL PORTRAIT is a bewitching portrait of a genius, and of a friendship between two men who are utterly different, yet increasingly bonded through a single, ever-evolving act of creativity. It is a film which shines a light on the artistic process itself, by turns exhilarating, exasperating and bewildering, questioning whether the gift of a great artist is a blessing or a curse.
