About the exhibition

Audiences will be treated to an award-winning selection of regional Queensland talent in the exhibition Paint the Town.

Paint the Town is the touring exhibition of the 2021 Queensland Regional Art Awards, and coincides with Flying Arts Alliance celebrating 50 years of delivering visual arts projects and services to regional and remote Queensland. 

Evoking the spirit of all things jubilant, exhibition artists have responded to the question – How do you celebrate? Is it serene or riotous – a party, a big bash, a festival, or a simple elegant affair? Does it display explosions of joy or quiet moments of reflection and gratitude; ceremony, tradition or ritual; a sense of occasion or ‘just because’?

The Queensland Regional Art Awards is an annual visual arts prize and exhibition for established and emerging artists living in regional and remote Queensland.
