Lockhart River Arts Centre had a succesfull outcome at the 2018 Cairns Indigenous Art Fair. The Art Centre sold +16% above its gross sales at the 2017 Cairns Indigenous Art Fair. The sales contributes to a very tight market environment. Artists Thelma Hobson, Evelyn Omeenyo and Irene Namok represeted the entire group at the Art Fair. Lockhart River thanks sincerely Arts Queensland under its BIA program for funding assistance, Skytrans Airlines for providing 3 free return tickets for the artists to travel from Lockhart River-Cairns- Lockhart River and free freight pre-art fair. Special thanks also to the CIAF Management team for delivering a great art fair.
