2012 is the International Year of Cooperatives (I.Y.C.)
For 10 years Curious Art has enabled artists to take control over their art using the Cooperative business model. Professional development among member artists is one of the Galleries core objectiives. Several
Cooperative members have moved into other areas of the arts including teaching and
workshops; testimony to the fact that Cooperatives play a vital role in the arts community.

Here at Curious Art Co-operative we have been loving it for more than ten years and now the United Nations is calling it: 2012 has been recognised as the International Year of Co-operatives. This is an acknowledgement by the international community that co-operatives drive the economy, respond to social change, are resilient to the global economic crisis and are serious, successful businesses creating jobs in all sectors.
New works from some of the Curious Kids and slightly older kids Noa Deane has been a regular exhibitor in the Curious Kids for several years. Now definetly past the kid category he’s a lifer for sure.
The legacy of Art from his creative grandmother Margaret P. Deane shines through.

How do you look at the world? From wherever we’re standing, this years exhibition promises to show each individuals take on their own inner, private worlds, and the world we all share.
While all are influenced by age, height, gender, beliefs, faith and life experience, this years theme “Looking At the World In A Whole New Way” exhibition encouraged the members of Curious Art to approach their work in a fun way.
Also exhibiting will be a selected number of children and adolescents by invitation. We have had the pleasure of having seen many of the same children exhibit each year at the end of the year, and the privilege of watching their work grow to be more personal.
