Canopy Artspace is a privately run space combining galleries, artist’s studios and a printmaking workshop that are dedicated to showcasing Queensland’s indigenous artists and providing the facilities to nurture the region’s artists of the future.
In this expansive 1,000 square meter (11,000 square feet) space, collectable contemporary works by internationally recognised artists such as Dennis Nona and Wynne Prize winner Joanne Currie hang along side those of emerging indigenous artists.
Fronting Grafton Street are two gallery spaces known as the AAN galleries, one dedicated to fine art prints and the other an exhibiting gallery showing paintings, sculptures and works in other media. Both spaces are run by the Australian Art Network who have been publishing, promoting and exhibiting works by indigenous artists nationally and internationally for almost 15 years.
Another indigenous arts industry pioneer, Theo Tremblay has relocated his fine art
printmaking studio, Editions Tremblay NFP into Canopy Artspace. Here artists can work on linocuts, etchings, lithographs, screenprints, mono prints and papermaking with this master printmaker.
