“Loved the Philip Wolfhagen Expo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

I dropped by on Community Day, well timed as free entry! I loved the exhibition by Tasmanian Artist Philip Wolfhagen, wonderful landscapes, such talent.
On the ground floor some very interesting indigenous art and the loft help works by Anna Eglitis and Ivy Zappala, both well displayed and informative.

“Smaller than i thought”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

An excellent show of work both from the Cairns region and other areas of Australia. There are 3 main exhibition spaces and although smaller than i thought it may be i was impressed with the quality of work on display. The gift shop also had a good selection of creative gifts and souvenirs.

“Certainly worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

The gallery is a very good place to escape the hustle and bustle of Cairns and spend an enjoyable couple house browsing the exhibits. The rooms are spacious and well laid out the quality of the works on display were of very engaging. We found the works of Phillip Wolfhagen particularly interesting, especially his works using beeswax.

“Excellent regional gallery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

This gallery is not afraid to put on exhibitions that are of a high standard with an edge! There was an excellent display of 2 local female artists work and a Tasmanian landscape painter whilst I was there.
