Welcome to Cairns Art Society

Cairns Art Society (CAS) is one of North Queensland's oldest and largest community art organisations.  A not-for-profit association, it supports not only a large membership but the region's artists in general, with exhibitions, classes and competitions.  

It operates two member-run art galleries and a working artist studio, whilst also partnering with the Cairns Regional Council and many local businesses to bring high quality local art to the community and visitors.
