The Cairns Art Society

Formed in 1931 the Cairns Art Society (CAS) is North Queensland's leading community art association and going from strength to strength.

Our Members, now more than 300, are an incredible collection of artists working in many mediums, sharing their love of art with each other and the public. A gallery of some of their work for sale can be found here. And now for sale in our new shop at DFO in Westcourt.

The Society is committed to supporting local artists to reach their potential, and to maintaining a vibrant art culture in the tropical North Queensland.

Skill development and networking activities include the monthly general meetings for members, with regular guest speakers and artist demonstrations.
