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.

Members meet monthly at 5.30pm on the second Thursday of the month at the Artists@work Studio & Gallery, 29 Sheridan Street, Cairns. Visitors are welcome.  NEXT MEETING: Thursday 11 March at 5.30 pm
