Collector's Exhibition
Amanda Emmett

8 Oct - 20 Nov 2022

The Artist Showcase is a new online initiative of the Cairns Art Gallery to support regional artists. The Showcase features regular online Collector’s Exhibitions that highlight an exclusive selection of works from an artist’s studio. Works from these exhibitions and specially produced artist merchandise, are available for purchase online and offer collectors the opportunity to directly support our regional artists.

Amanda Emmett is our current Collector’s Exhibition feature artist.

Amanda Emmett is a Cairns-based artist who predominantly works in the media of painting and photography. 

The world in transition and the fragility of the natural environment are the focus of Emmett’s paintings. As the artist explains, 

I am mostly inspired by nature and experiences and try to convey how being in a certain environment makes us feel, the dilemmas, disturbing truths, and repercussions of the choices we make in our social behaviour, what we consume, and the pollution we create.

Emmett's online exhibition showcases six new paintings that continue her interest in the fragility of the natural world, and the urgent need for positive action to remedy its destruction.

The Artist Showcase project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
