We are proud to invite you to help us celebrate another successful year in promoting contemporary Australian artists in Tasmania artists through the opening of our 31st Annual Summer Group Show. This annual tradition is a delightful way to celebrate the strengths and diversity of all our artists, across multiple mediums and themes.  Artists exhibiting include Geoff Dyer, Todd Jenkins, Lucia Usmiani, Patrick Hall, Micheila Petersfield, Sam Field, Jenny Orchard, Mathew Simms and Bill Yaxley. This year our Summer Show will also act as a platform to introduce new artists to our stable, including Matt Calvert, Loraine Biggs, Ochre Lawson and Verna Nichols, as well as emerging artists Zoe Grey and Maggie Jeffries.  This will be a great opportunity to appreciate the creative energy that makes up our artist stable, as we all as preview new works as a visual taste of the year to come.

To celebrate the upcoming holidays and to thank our artists for another fabulous year, please join us for Christmas drinks and launch our Annual Summer Show!
