Angela Meyer – Leaves and Petals at the Tanks Arts Centre
Event by Tanks Arts Centre.
This exhibition of watercolour paintings reflects on the trend in propagating aroids and tropical flora in the gardens of north Queensland, and as a global trend for indoor gardening as a result of Covid-19.
Speewah based artist, Angela Meyer has been preoccupied with painting botanical and figurative forms throughout her career of more than three decades. The idea for this exhibition evolved from Angela’s interest in gardening, growing of aroids and visiting tropical gardens in the region.
The paintings are of plants that either grow at her home, the Cairns Botanic Gardens, or in private gardens and collections. The paintings seek to celebrate the beauty of the plants and to draw attention to their vulnerability and environmental importance.
Launch: 6pm Friday 27 May
Residency: Fri 27 May – Sun 29 Jun
9am – 4.30pm, weekdays and 10am – 2pm weekends
Venue: Tank 4
