Kuranda Arts Co-op member Toni Rogers has been selected for Strand Ephemera 2019 in Townsville. This week Toni assembled her beach installation “The Language, the Wind and the Tides” consisting of 230 painted coconuts.


“Coconuts are reportedly not indigenous to Australia and travelled to our shores from Asia and the Pacific via the wind and the tides. This contemporary artwork incorporates painted coconuts to represent the caring of the ‘language’ of the Pacific.”


NZ born fibre artist Toni Rogers has exhibited extensively and has developed a hybrid blend of the traditional and the contemporary. Intricate Oceanic pattern work has come to define her signature style.


The very popular Strand Ephemera starts on 26th July through to 4 August.
