Another Wet City — Robert Baines: Metal in Cairns

Sandra Brown is Object’s Touring Coordinator. Tasked with managing installs and bump-outs around the country, her travels have recently included navigating floods in Wagga Wagga.

It seems like the rain and water are following me around the country! Just back from wet and soggy Cairns, where I was installing Robert Baines: Metal, which is another touring exhibition for the Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft series.

Cairns Regional Art Gallery is a graceful old building in the heart of the city and is a very popular venue for locals and tourists alike. Object has a great relationship with this gallery, with a number of our touring shows going there. The most recent was Menagerie: Contemporary Indigenous Sculpture last year, and next year HYPERCLAY: Contemporary Ceramics will also show there.

Robert Baines’ exceptional jewellery and fine metal sculptures were well received by people at the opening last Friday night. Robert also attended, speaking animatedly about his work and practice.

Anyone planning a visit to Cairns and far north Queensland before 24 June should pop into the gallery and have a look at the unbelievable work in this exhibition.
