You can take the creative out of the art but you can’t take the art out of the creative. Despite the festival cancellation some of these events have found safe ways to share their work and bring people together. Originally a part of the 2021 Darwin Fringe program, these shows are now kicking on in their own way.
On display now. An immersive small sculpture exhibition with artworks in the show resembling flora with an abstract twist. Crafted with Recycled materials.
On display at Dom’s Bar & lounge in Nightcliff
Closing Party: Friday July 16
NO NICE NATIVES?
The first ever exhibition from local painter Stephanie Brooke. An exploration of native botanicals from around the Territory using contrasted colour and intricate pattern.

On display at Art Decor and Picture Framing, 5/33 Cavenagh St until July 23rd
Gallery open Mondays to Friday 9am-5pm, Saturday 9.30am-1pm
DO I SEDUCE YOU?
The first ever solo show from creative Tarzan Jungle Queen. Queer bodies are often seen only for their similarities and differences to the male and female body. ‘Do I seduce you?’ is both parody and provocation – asking you to look closely and consider your own sexual response.
