Queer art on the move

Tropical Fruits annual art exhibition, Elle-mental, will move from the Lismore Showgrounds to the Serpentine Gallery after the New Year celebrations.

More than 30 queer artists and their friends are preparing to install artwork at the Tropical Fruits New Year’s Eve Party at the Lismore Showgrounds. Partygoers will be able to immerse themselves in a space that reflects and represents the life and passion of the local and interstate exhibiting artists.

If you’re not going to the party, but would like to indulge in some very passionate queer art, to get insights into a queer life, a selection of the work will be exhibited at the Serpentine Gallery in North Lismore in the new year.

Opening night of It’s A Queer Life is Wednesday, January 6.

Be at the Serpentine from 7pm to meet the artists and feast on an assortment of fine fruity art. The exhibition runs until January 29.
