Welcome to Cairns – Mark Cochrane

WELCOME TO CAIRNS…..   Mark Cochrane – digital prints

Opening 6pm Friday 11 December

Exhibition 11 December 2015 – 18 February 2016 (Extended due to popular demand)

The idea for the exhibition spawned from www.nanavantrek.com a blog of travels by Nan and Pop dolls with their car and airstream caravan.

What started as a fun sideline for Mark soon developed into a social media following worldwide. The blog was a Queensland Multi-Media Awards Finalist. Mark is always adding to Nan and Pop’s adventures, that’s why the art is ever growing.  As Pop says, “Cairns is just the tip of the ointment”!
