The Mainie Aboriginal Art Gallery is located less than 2 kilometres from the Cairns CBD.
The artwork and Artists are from Utopia, North east of Alice Springs and Yuendumu in the Northern Territory. The Aboriginal arts centres are located on the remote desert homelands of the artists, where there is an unbroken connection to their traditional Aboriginal culture and languages. The impeccable provenance and irreplaceable cultural significance of the artworks created by the Utopia and Warlukurlangu artists have made their paintings highly sought after by major fine art galleries and museums around the world.
Mainie is an approved Indigenous Art Code dealer member and all artworks are presented with a Certificate of Authenticity.
The spacious and fully air-conditioned Mainie gallery also has artworks by North Queensland Aboriginal artists on display, as well as locally handcrafted artefacts such as Rhythm sticks, boomerangs and didgeridoos.
