- View Watershed exhibition in Cairns

October 09, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Art enthusiasts heading to Cairns next month will have the opportunity to see an exhibition that depicts the diversity of environmental life in the region.

Watershed, a collection of the latest works of Michael Hodgkins, will be on display at the city's Tanks Arts Centre between October 16th and November 9th 2010.

People who head out from their Cairns hotels to view the installation will be treated to an array of images that illustrate the diversity of tropical north Queensland, featuring everything from its rainforests to its seaside areas.

Urban landscapes and "pea-soup bushlands" are also a feature of the exhibition, the venue explained.

According to the art space, the region's landscape is typified "by rivers and streams, which change the shape of the landscape as they slowly make their way in various forms … to the sea".

These watercourses - which vary from rivers and streams to lakes and billabongs - are juxtaposed with man-made structures, the organisers remarked.

No entrance fee is required to view the exhibition, which is open each weekday between 09:00 and 16:30 local time.

Visits on a Saturday and Sunday can be made between 10:00 and 15:00.

Tanks Arts Centre is located on Collins Avenue in Edge Hill, about 4km north of Cairns CBD.
