Gay artists wanting to exhibit at the Tropical Fruits annual New Year’s Art Exhibition need to start working now.

Registrations for the exhibition, to be held at the Lismore Showgrounds, are already open.

Now in its fourth year, the exhibition is an integral part of the Tropical Fruits New Year’s experience, considered one of the best gay, lesbian and queer festivals in the country.

“It is a dynamic extravaganza for local, interstate and international artists to display their talent and expertise while networking with potential clients or collaborators,” Tropical Fruits spokesman Duncan Maurice said.

The exhibition runs from 31 December to 8 January and this year’s theme is Glamour.

“The original meaning of the word glamour was the act of casting a spell over someone, particularly to change how things appeared to them,” the exhibition curator Shane Duniam said.

“The primary modern meaning of the word relates to fascination, charisma, beauty, or sexual attraction. People, or their lifestyles, can be described as glamorous.”
