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.

She has now launched a silent auction of the artworks, to be finalised at her official opening on the 9th, so bids can be placed any time. All are welcome to the opening, where drinks for sale will assist the fund-raising.
