Art on Cairncross, near Maleny, presents this exhibition by noted Queensland artist Rex Backhaus-Smith. Born in Western Queensland, Rex has been painting the Australian outback, in his own unique fashion for over 50 years.

This exhibition, "Gondolas, Gaudi and Pearls of the Sea" shows Rex's inspiration to create three different suites of work from recent travels to North Queensland and to Spain and Italy. This is the first time that Backhaus-Smith has painted subjects from abroad and is partially due to his amazing recovery from an almost fatal fall in 2012.
