CIAF invites independent artists to participate in 2016

The Cairns Indigenous Art Fair once again welcomes emerging and established independent artists to take part in the 2016 Art Fair.

The application process is now open for independent Queensland Indigenous artists, who are not affiliated with, or showcased by an art centre, gallery or artist collective.

There is no guarantee that submitted works will be selected. Due to the limited exhibition space, CIAF is seeking work of a high standard, quality and presentation. Works must have been created after January 2015.

A completed application form is required and must accompany all submissions. Visit CIAF's new website to download your form.   

Please note: The responsibility for freight and delivery of art work to and from the CIAF Art Fair will be the cost of participating artists.

Independent artists registration is due by 13 May, 2016.


CIAF News watch....

The CIAF brand hits the streets in daily Cairns city traffic, larger than life, on the sides and backs of Go Transit buses.  Go Transit buses rotate routes regularly, so watch out for the stunning images of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander dancers, art and fashion when you are out and about. CIAF bus advertising is a bit of on-road eye candy and a reminder that CIAF 2016 is just 12 weeks away!
