Julie McEnerny and the Offshoots series of residencies and exhibitions have been supported by Cairns Regional Council with in-kind assistance and grants, including the Regional Arts Development Fund in partnership with Arts Queensland.
Over five years, launches of the Offshoots exhibitions have been catered with sponsorship from by The Edge Café & Food Store and Jacobs Creek wines.
Thanks to Curator, David Warmington, Interpretive Officer, Tony Roberts and all the staff at the Cairns Botanic Gardens for providing generous access to the collection and expert knowledge. Thanks also to Curator, Chris Stannard and all the staff at the Tanks Arts Centre for consistently programming career development opportunities for local artists.
Several works were loaned for the duration of the touring exhibition, thanks to Annie Copely, Helen Rivett, Ricky Patten and Linda Rouse.
Thanks to Cairns Regional Gallery for purchasing the suite of etchings from Offshoots II, and to Friends of Flecker Gardens for sponsorship contributions and valued support.
Thanks is also given to Julie’s family, friends and collegues for their on-going encouragement and support, along with the many individuals who have supported Offshoots by purchasing artworks and attending exhibition launches.
