Our Mission Statement
To promote & facilitate the continuing development of professional and professional emerging visual artists in/from the Mackay/Whitsunday Region
To assist in bridging the gap for Visual Artists from formal training to commercial viability and provide access to a range of services such as information, networking, training and professional development and advocacy.
Achieving this vision through:
- Promoting local artists and their artworks
- Facilitate ongoing Professional Development opportunities
- Committed to maintaining open and inclusive communication with all stakeholders
- Committed to creating an active and creative learning environment for all
- Supporting creativity, industry innovation, excellence and best practice
In 2007 Orange Gecko Art Network through Ann Williams-Fitzgerald, identified a huge need for the established local regional artists to be able to complete their post-graduate studies without having to relocate to undertake that study. Ann was therefore instrumental in persuading the University of Tasmania’s School of Visual and Performing Arts, Head of School Professor Vincent McGrath to travel to Mackay with the view of offering post-graduate studies in Mackay from 2008. The visit proved highly successful and there are now over 45 artists studying and completing their Master of Contemporary Arts through the Mackay external program which started in a community partnership with CQUniversity at the Mackay Campus. Many Orange Gecko Art Newtwork members have gone on to complete their postgraduate degrees through this community partnership.
