Climb out of the primordial art soup this month, with Australias’ most unique artist-run-initiative, The Upholstery Contemporary Arts and their latest multi-sensory offering, Evolution.

Evolution takes many forms, from life to death, organic to industrial to cyber, sometimes it’s more obvious…. the world around, with social, political, cultural and confrontational changes, or the every day things you notice change over the years.  Down to the unseen, personal development we all go through at some time.

Evolution was also a celebration of the groups’ fifth anniversary, and its own metamorphosis into Queenslands’ oldest and largest artist-run-initiative. Acknowledging this achievement was Artworkers CEO Tony Stephens, who opened the event.

Featuring thirteen of the North Queensland’s freshest emerging and developing artists Nicola Bryars, Sophie Cadman, Anna Holan, Ross Hucks, Dominic Johns, Julie McEnerny, Caroline Mudge, Neil Parker, Simon Poole, Bexley Reeves, Kristin Tennyson, Samuel Tupou, Marcel Varna the exhibition included paintings, photography, assemblage, digital works and installations.

Dan Zooth scrambled the DNA with his funky beats and the Green Ant Cantina provided genetically-modified-free snacks and drinks.

The Upholstery is supported by the Australian Government and the Queensland Government, through Arts Queensland, as part of the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy.

The Upholstery is also proudly supported by Artworkers, Justpurple New Media, the Green Ant Cantina, and Lovegreen Photography.
