Postcard Art Fundraiser 2021


To be a nature-lover has come to mean living out a tragic love story. How do we balance the overwhelming wonderment of our natural world with the heartache of its immense suffering?

NQCC's biennial Postcard Art fundraiser is back! On show at Umbrella Studio Contemporary Arts from Friday 10th September 6pm, all postcard-sized artworks will be auctioned off at the end of the exhibition 9th October 6pm, with all funds supporting our work here in North Queensland!

About the exhibition

Every two years, artists from North Queensland and all around the country (and overseas) support North Queensland Conservation Council by donating a small artwork to our exhibition. Using a postcard as a size guide, these artworks include paintings, sketches, photographs and prints, as well as small 3-dimensional artworks. This year we are so grateful to have received over 125 artworks from some incredible artist, so make sure you drop into Umbrella Studio Contemporary Arts or if you can't make it in, you can now also view all 125 artworks via our online Gallery.

The exhibition is displayed at Umbrella Studio Contemporary Arts in Townsville's CBD and also online.
